City Paper is not for tourists
The male revues that have passed through the region in the wake of Magic Mike XXL may have let ticket buyers down, but lovers of fit, hunky men who can dance (and sing! and act!) should hold out hope that Signature Theatre’s fourth annual “Summer Hummer” show won’t disappoint. More than 60 D.C.-area performers will appear onstage in various states of undress at the annual cabaret variety show, which Signature Artistic Director Eric Schaeffer will direct. The previous three Hummers have raised more than $130,000 for the Taking Care of Our Own Fund, a pool of money that assists members of the local theater community with health care costs and other related needs. Those who have signed on to sing this year include Sherri Edelen, Will Gartshore, Donna Migliaccio, Nova Payton, Tracy Lynn Olivera, and Nicholas Rodriguez. Also performing: two ensembles who have dubbed themselves the Jockstrap Boys and the Foreplay Pasties. Come out to support the cause, bring cash to tuck into a dance belt, and be there for the big reveal. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. at Signature Theatre, 4200 Campbell Ave., Arlington. $35.
