When: Fri., Dec. 4, 8:15 p.m. 2009
Girlie-Q, Chicago's premiere LGBT alternative to mainstream burlesque, presents Delight Before Christmas, a sexy, campy journey to discover the meaning of Christmas, starring Faustina von Feist, Honey La Fleur, Paul "Pusie" Backer, Adam "Elena" Rose, Kelly "Special K" Kiorpes, Brad "Jugglemaster" French, Kyle Greer, Brad Brubaker the "Emoclown," the Stage Door Johnnies, and the Amazing, Bendable, Poseable Dolls of Doom, with special guests Siren Jinx & The Revelettes. A hopeless Fox News intern posts a sad message on Craigslist and is led on a magical quest by the Fairy Craigster to find the true meaning of Christmas. They encounter a gender-bending gang of performers who each express the meaning of the season in unique and titillating ways. Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8:15 PM from 11/27 through 12/19 at Theatre Building Chicago, 1225 West Belmont Avenue. Tickets $15–$20 via Ticketmaster.
