Quentin Crisp

There are still some tickets left for "The Wit and Wisdom of Quentin Crisp," this weekend's fund-raiser for AXIS Theatre. The flamboyant 90-year-old British writer and performer is the author of the 1968 landmark autobiography, "The Naked Civil Servant." His latest book is "Resident Alien," a 1997 volume based on his diary entries from the New York Native. Crisp will appear in two performances of his confessional 1978 one-man show, which he reprised in a sold-out off-Broadway run earlier this season.

Saturday's 8 p.m. performance at Center Stage, 700 N. Calvert St., is preceded by a reception at 6:30 p.m. and ends with a reception and a book signing. Tickets are $60. Call 410-332-0033. Crisp will repeat his performance at AXIS, 3600 Clipper Mill Road, at 4:30 p.m. Sunday, followed by high tea. Tickets are $150. Call 410-243-0167.
