After distinguishing himself as the world's most artful Billie Holiday channeler (suck it, David Sedaris), gender-bending performance artist Joey Arias celebrated the new millennium with an extended run with Cirque du Soleil and an award-winning theatrical collaboration with acclaimed puppeteer Basil Twist. Drag star Sherry Vine remains what she's always been: a statuesque blond with an enormous voice. SINsation finds the pair saluting "vaudeville and burlesque" via songs of Johnny Mercer, Kander and Ebb, and other standard-generators. (Re-bar, 1114 Howell St, 8 pm, $20, 21+.)
