Arts Dina Martina: Back with a Vengeance
posted by December 4 at 9:15 AMon
This weekend, I had the great pleasure of attending the new Dina Martina Christmas Show at Re-bar, and it was amazing. Extended touring has made the Dina Martina Experience an extremely tight and well-oiled machine, and the Christmas show is a start-to-finish knockout. The new material is prime, the recycled bits are choice and brightened by the recontextualization, and I laughed till I cried at least three different times. I tell people to go see all of Dina shows. This one you shouldn’t miss. Get your tickets here.
(And yes, that is a photo of Dina with Three’s Company Joyce DeWitt. And yes, Dina is wearing her signature brown pipe cleaner to help raise awareness for “rump cancer.”)
For those unfamiliar with the singular magic that is Dina Martina, here’s my Stranger profile of Dina creator Grady West from 1999, a treatise on the genius of Dina by Andrew Sullivan from 2006, and an astute if stuffy pro-Dina screed from Blogcritics.org.
