Marvel vs Burlesque

Marvel vs. DC Comics Burlesque 

When: Fri., June 17, 9 p.m. 2016
Price: $10-$20




The summer box-office battle between Marvel and DC spills out—really spills out—into Southland Ballroom in this comics-themed burlesque show, where performers portray your favorite superheroes from both companies in saucy stripteases and variety entertainments. Returning for its second year, the show is produced by the local burlesque mainstays of Boom OR Bust, who have previously performed with The Beast at the Pinhook and mounted a grindhouse-cinema-themed show at the Casbah. Though burlesque is an almost demure form of salaciousness by today's standards, this one's probably not for the kids, unless you want your tyke to discover an intense new fascination with Catwoman.
