Kink, fetishes and all that good stuff

  Kneel, slave, to theater that kicks you in the butt.
  When you start with the S&M, you know any stage tucked inside a fetish shop is likely to get its freak on. At the Onyx Theatre — within the charmingly named store The Rack, known for its fondness for leather goods — they’ve redefined “alternative arts” for Las Vegas, infusing an outta-left-field energy into our relatively conservative community theater scene with productions from a female “Hamlet” to “Cannibal the Musical” to flashes of Shakespearean nudity in “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.”
  Cooking up a 2008-09 schedule that includes 14 mainstream productions, spiced by a Second Stage series in the Spring and garnished  with their ongoing oddities — including “Rocky Horror,” the SET Improv and “The Wayward Ways Vaudeville Variety Show” — Onyx’s in-house Insurgo Theater Movement is hosting a benefit to fund all the fun.
  On Aug. 26, brace for “Elizabethan: An Evening of Performance” that, says Insurgo’s subversive mastermind, John Beane, will be “a celebratory, fetishistic explosion of Elizabethan kink, Bard-olatry and hysteria.” Not to understate it, mind you. Joining in with Insurgo onstage will be members of Cirque du Soleil, Blue Man Group, Sugar Puppy, Dave Attell’s The Gong Show and the Westwood Dancers. Oh, plus “a blessing of the theatre by the Sin Sity Sisters.” (Amen.)
  Tix are 50 bucks for the show at 953 E. Sahara Ave., starting at 8 p.m. Call 732-7225 for more info.
  And while you’re there, do a little shopping. You’ve always looked good in a leather face mask.
  Now kneel.
