The Oregon Tail Burlesque: You Have Died of Sexy The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Fridays. Continues through April 11 2014

Gorilla Tango Burlesque's latest, a "video game, film noir, murder mystery burlesque," is a parody based on the decidedly unsexy computer game that debuted 40 years ago and taught most of us about the dangers of dysentery and cholera. The results are fun and nostalgic, but otherwise blah. Actress Titty Titty Bang Bang redeems the show as Big Dick, a private eye with the voice of Katharine Hepburn and the savvy of Edward G. Robinson. The detective's presence on the Oregon Trail and interaction with the audience (hint: the guilty party may be among us) add excitement and sex appeal where bison hunting and frostbite jokes fall flat. —Marissa Oberlander
