Reverend Yolanda 

When: Fri., Sept. 27, 8 p.m. 2013
A fascinating New York performance spectacle, Reverend Roger Anthony Yolanda Mapes is a gospel artist in drag, advocating for equality and baiting with humor. A former bluegrass musician, Mapes pauses her traditional and original gospel numbers to deliver stories about her complicated life as a closeted queen in the South with irrepressible wit and candor. "Rev. Yolanda's Old-Time Gospel Hour," as she calls her show, is unequal parts parody, tribute and progress, a deeply reverent update on institutions that haven't necessarily yet made way for folks like the reverend. —Grayson Currin
