  • Dina Martina, John Waters and Alan Cumming all are coming to New Orleans stages in March and April.

Some of the latest performance announcements in town include outrageous Seattle-based drag performer Dina Martina; writer/director/artist John Waters; and singer/actor Alan Cumming, who won a Tony Award for his performance in the Broadway revival of Cabaret.

•  Dina Martina's press materials say her performances are "absolutely packed with ludicrous song, horrifying dance, overburdened costumes and sidesplitting video ... Dina Martina's shows are impossible to describe," and add that she's shared bills with everyone from Modest Mouse to Nina Hagen. This is Martina's New Orleans debut. Her YouTube appearance are, well, something else.

•  John Waters is a longtime director, author of several books (including the recent Carsick) and a frequent visitor to New Orleans, where he shows his art at Arthur Roger Gallery (read his 2010 Gambit cover story interview). His new one-man show is called This Filthy World: Filthier & Dirtier. He appeared in A John Waters Christmas at the Joy Theater in 2013.
