Thank You For the Music


The Gateway Men's Chorus marks the last official weekend of spring with hot sounds from cool Swedes. The chorus has promised to turn the Edison Theatre at Washington University (6445 Forsyth Boulevard; 314-935-6543) into the hottest disco in town with ExtrABBAganza, featuring such classics as "Mamma Mia," "Waterloo" and, of course, "Dancing Queen." But the 80-member chorus isn't just concerned with having a dancing good time. ExtrABBAganza continues its tradition of promoting gay culture by honoring the musical heroes of the community in hopes of reaching people who might not get their message of acceptance otherwise. This show marks the end of the chorus' yearlong 25th anniversary celebration. ExtrABBAganza takes the stage at 8 p.m. on Friday, June 15, and Saturday, June 16. Tickets are $20 to $25, and they're available at
