When: Sat., Aug. 15, 8 p.m. 2015
Sharp-dressed and sharper-tongued drag comic Bianca Del Rio is currently doing a residency in Provincetown, but she tears herself away long enough to light up the Sheldon (3648 Washington Boulevard; 314-533-9900 or www.thesheldon.org) at 8 p.m. tonight with her Rolodex of Hate show. Del Rio achieved wider fame when she triumphed on RuPaul's Drag Race, but she earned her fearsome reputation as a performer in the clubs of New Orleans. Some wits are described as "rapier-like," or better yet "savage"; Del Rio is feral, like Don Rickles on a bad day. Find out if she has your number in her Rolodex. Tickets are $38 to $81.50.
