kristina wong's big industry showcase

Check this out, you sexy people! My pal, performance artist Kristina Wong is celebrating her birthday with a big show tomorrow night in Los Angeles. "HOORAY (WHORING) For Hollywood! Kristina Wong's BIG Industry Showcase" is a cross between a "Best-of" show and an industry-friendly "pander-rama." It's her satirical homage to the Hollywood Industry Showcase (folks in "the biz" know what this is), but more importantly, it's her unabashed attempt to get some friggin' work. Whatever works for you, babe. It's tomorrow night, June 2. Here are some details:
HOORAY (WHORING) For Hollywood!
Kristina Wong’s BIG Industry Showcase

After years of sticking it to the man as a progressive grassroots performance artist, Kristina Wong forfeits the high road for the low-brow glitz of showbiz (and the possibility of health insurance). Pop those residual checks all over me Mr. Casting Director so I can buy a real pearl necklace! Watch Kristina sanitize and compromise her performance repertoire to gratify her entertainment executive tricks. Because what good is integrity when you can sell your family up the river for a development deal? Erected by Nurit Siegel.
