The Original Britney Spears

January 10, 2008

During Queen Christina of Sweden's more than 20-year reign, she converted to Catholicism, abdicated her throne and was rumored to have had love affairs with men and women. Christina's controversial nature is at the heart of playwright Howard Casner's "Queen Christina Goes Roman," opening this weekend at the Complex's East Theatre in Hollywood. But nothing is as it seems in this fictional account of the monarch's life. Not only do characters such as composer Peter Tchaikovsky and McCarthyite Roy Cohn make an appearance, but the tongue-in-cheek production takes on real subjects that include celebrity foibles and organized religion. Pictured: Konima Parkinson-Jones, left, and Julie Burrise. Opens 8 p.m. Sat., runs 8 p.m. Thu.-Sat., 7 p.m. Sun. Ends Feb. 18. $20. (213) 304-1063, www.complexhollywood.com
