MO’ SWEATERS MO’ PROBLEMS

Sequined sweater-wearing rapper Leslie Hall is a testament to the oddly sourced successes of the Internet age. She gained popularity by posting pictures of her sparkly knits online, then started producing music to pay for her site’s bandwidth. Hall brings her show (including “sweater christenings” with the audience) to Art Square Theatre for a mini-residency September 10-14. ToddAndBryan.com.

HECKLERS BEWARE

For eight seasons, Susie Essman played the foul-mouthed better half of Jeff Garlin on Curb Your Enthusiasm. In real life, she’s less prone to use expletives, but can still wound your side with laughter—or verbal shivs, if necessary. Catch her as part of the Venetian’s all-female comedy series, Lipshtick, September 6. Venetian.com/Lipshtick.

THESE SHOES SHINE

What’s a man to do when he inherits his father’s struggling shoe factory? In Kinky Boots, it’s drag queens to the rescue! The six-time Tony Award-winning musical kicks off its national tour September 4-14 at The Smith Center. Expect to be dazzled and bedazzled. TheSmithCenter.com.

SILVER STATE ON THE SILVER SCREEN

It’s not often we can flaunt the theatrical release of a film created by an all-local cast and crew. Therefore, we suggest Popovich and the Voice of the Fabled American West, which screens Sept. 5-11 at Brenden Theatres. Gregory Popovich of World Famous Popvich Comedy Pet Theater plays the lead, but the real stars are the more than 45 shelter animals in the film. Being such, $1 from each ticket benefits the Animal Foundation. PopovichMovie.com.
