Top 5 Shows to Get Drunk and Rowdy At
The Awesome ‘80s Prom
    A John Hughes flick come to life that allows you to party with punks, jocks, princesses and geeks, all at once.
Webster Hall, 125 E 11th St.
The Fantasy Party From the producers of Tony ‘n Tina’s Wedding, natch, comes this outrageous, female-oriented evening, which includes cocktails, cock talk and male strippers. Sofias at the Edison Hotel, 221 W 46th St.

Kiki & Herb: Alive on Broadway  Kiki (aka downtown drag phenomenon Justin Bond) has spent the last decade marinating in alcohol. Get smashed while you watch her do the same in her Broadway debut. Helen Hayes Theater, 240 W 44th St.
Stomp  After 12 years this percussive performance shows no signs of letting up. Scream all you want, no one will hear you. Orpheum Theatre, 126 Second Ave.
Tony ‘n Tina’s Wedding Since 1988 this fictional union has offered raucous interactive fun (including a pot party in the bathroom) that rivals any real family gathering. Vinnie Black’s Coliseum at the Edison Hotel, 221 W 46th St

Top 5  Venues With Strange Things On Stage
Ace of Clubs
    Stripping puppets (Harvey Finklestein’s Sock Puppet ShowGirls) and rowdy Republicans (Billionaires for Bush) are just some of the wacky high jinks that go on in this literal underground theater.
9 Great Jones St. 
Ars Nova     It may look like a swanky cabaret room, but this offbeat theater hosts a lot of down and dirty talent such as the swinging Wau Wau Sisters and foul-mouthed lesbian mama Judy Gold. 511 W 54th St.
Brick Theater Gloriously gimmicky programming (e.g. this summer’s $ellout Festival) features everything from kung fu to robot musicals. 575 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn
Collective Unconscious    Even edgier than it was on Ludlow Street, this alternative performance space has showcased the likes of Karen Finley and madman Neal Medlyn.  279 Church St.
HERE Arts Center  With a gallery, a café and three theaters, you’re sure to find something odd going on any night
