Benefits, Performance Art, Off The Wall

A Goo Goo Gaga Gala

When: Fri., March 30, 7 p.m. 2012

A giant hot-pink monster blob with a huge mouth invades a skyscraper just south of Crown Center tonight, when Lathrop & Gage hosts Whoop Dee Doo's Telebration, "a Goo Goo Gaga Gala" at the law firm (2345 Grand, 22nd floor). Ticket sales go toward helping the 19-member artist-volunteer group develop its performance and meeting space so that "WDD can expand its reach," says co-founder Jaimie Warren. She started the group in 2006 with Matt Roche, calling it a traveling, "kid-friendly, faux public access television show." Expect all kinds of multicultural, hyperactive dancing, games and special guests, including the KC Chinese Association, Ron Megee and a telephone bank of celebrities and creatures. "We always go for the craziest mix possible," Warren says. Tickets cost $30 at the door ($25 in advance) and include hors d'oeuvres from more than 15 local restaurants, an open bar, skits, games and prizes. The party starts at 7 p.m., with a big show at 8:30. For more information, contact Megan Mantia (who spent the year planning it all) at 816-582-6395 or
