If you can’t get enough of Asheville’s favorite irritainer, Cookie LaRue is back with a new stage show. Billed as Between a Rack and a Hard Place (formerly “Iraq and a Hard Place,” but, according to LaRue, “After much discussion it was decided to just go with T&A instead of the political … What would Cookie really care about a war unless she was in it and it was over Cheetos production!”), the evening promises a rousing dose of campy humor, slapstick songs, door prizes, crafts, dancing, audience participation and (or course) the organ stylings of Frankie Sitz.
The show runs Friday June 6 and 13 at LaRue’s Backdoor (237 Haywood St., Asheville, 252-1014) at 10 p.m. (get there on time; the door tends to be locked once the show is sold out). Tickets are $10 and be purchased in advance or at the door.
