    Citizens Band show The Panic is On is a revue for these politically-charged times

    Downtown darlings The Citizens Band (you know, that merry band of singers, acrobats and supermodels - we're talking to you, Karen Elson - that every so often dons fishnets and kewpie lipstick and goes all Vaudevillian-via-Weimar for our pleasure) are bringing their much-ballyhooed politically-tinged extravaganza The Panic is On to Henry Street Settlement for a three-night engagement starting tomorrow, October 23. The show tackles such issues as "fear mongering, war, immigration, xenophobia, poverty and their own dreams for political change." So in other words, it's completely in the realm of fantasy.
