Randy Rainbow, the New York-based singer/comic actor/writer/video producer, brings his live show to the Taft Theatre.

The 90-minute stage show, described as a “greatest hits package,” includes some of Rainbow’s most popular song parodies plus a Q&A.

Rainbow became popular with the LGBTQ community when his 2010 video parody, “Randy Rainbow is Dating Mel Gibson,” went viral. Since, he’s done tons of political satire and in February Rainbow was cast on Broadway as Sebastian Sebastian in a week-long restaging of Call Me Madam.

His large, loyal and vocal fanbase weigh in on new song parodies, which Rainbow generally drops on Mondays after marathon sessions of writing, filming and editing. His most recent videos posted in May included a nod to Pop icon Ariana Grande’s “Breathin,” which became “Just Impeach Him.”

8 p.m. Friday (June 21). $47. Taft Theatre, 317 E. Fifth St., Downtown, tafttheatre.org.
