TraniWreck: Why Not?

TRANIWRECK: WHY NOT?

Club Oberon, 2 Arrow St., Cambridge, Friday, 7:30 p.m.
617-496-8004, www.cluboberon.com

The deal: The camp carousal that is TraniWreck has been on hiatus for a year, but this Friday night it’s back at Oberon, replete with drag, acrobatics, burlesque, and, as performer Johnny Blazes says, an overall “trashy roller coaster of good times.” An informal video montage recapping TraniWrecks of the past will jump-start the night; a slew of wild, extemporaneous performances will follow. Indeed, some of the performances will come as much of a surprise to emcee and host Heywood Wakefield as to audience members. “[Performers] Frieda Fries and Katya are going to be doing a duet together,” says Wakefield.

The drinks: “Birthday” (in honor of both Wakefield and Johnny Blazes), “Seizure” (because Wakefield once had a seizure), and “Aphasia” (because Wakefield has experienced aphasia since his stroke).

The venue: “It’s this total 360 space,” says Blazes. “You could even do theater in the round. But it can feel like a cabaret, too, with its curtains and whatnot, and that’s what we’re going for.”

The tip: Get ready to interact with the performers . . . Bring some dollar bills: “Drag and stripping have similarities like that,” says Blazes.
