Jade Esteban Estrada as Billie Jean King

What do Alexander the Great, Harvey Milk and Susan B. Anthony all have in common? They're featured in Latin star Jade Esteban Estrada's new production, Icons: The Lesbian and Gay History of the World, Vol. 2. Back by popular demand, the so-called "Prince of Pride" returns to Suncoast Theatre to help open the St. Pete Pride festivities for the second year in a row. Icons is a one-man show in which the charismatic entertainer impersonates six world-changing gay figures with song, dance and drag, reminding audiences that gays have been making their mark throughout history, not just post-Will & Grace. Due to the number of requests for an encore, Estrada performs Icons: Vol. 1 (shown last year) and Vol. 2 on a rotating schedule. Presented by Gypsy Productions. Through June 4, 8 p.m. Thurs-Sat, 1:30 p.m. Sun., 3000 34th St. S., St. Petersburg, $16 in advance/ $18 at the door, 727-456-0500.
