GO THE LAST DAYS OF DESMOND NANI REESE: A STRIPPER'S HISTORY OF THE WORLD
Set in 2014 Los Angeles, Heather Woodbury's one-woman show sends up academics while respecting sex workers. Trying to finish her dissertation on the history of loose women, with her grant money running low, Amber, an "ethno-feminist-dance anthropologist," seeks to interview Desmond Reese, a reclusive 108-year-old former stripper who lives with 27 cats. Well-directed by Abigail Deser, Woodbury moves easily between the naive Harvard academic and the salty old pro. (Sandra Ross) Bang, 457 N. Fairfax Ave., Hlywd.; Sat., 8 p.m.; thru Feb. 23.
