Peek-A-Boo: An Ooky Spooky Halloween Burlesque Closing (Theater and Galleries) Member Picks The Short List (Theater)

When: Fridays. Continues through Oct. 26 2012

Parts of this Halloween-themed revue from the bawdy strippers and quippers of Kiss Kiss Cabaret play the way a store-bought trick-or-treat costume looks: as sharp as they get, it's too easy to see right past the mask. The show swaggers only when the vamps turn truly vampirical. That happens with the chorus ghouls and an eerie burlesquer dressed as a Twilight Zone gremlin, but other acts come across as standard ecdysiasm set to spooky music. Even so, you can still admire the makeup, or how suggestive a Halloween song can get. Speaking of music, the house band's acoustic sing-along performance of "Monster Mash" completely steals the show. —Asher Klein
