The Wild Party Variety Hour Member Picks The Short List (Theater) Closing (Theater and Galleries)

When: Third Saturday of every month. Continues through Nov. 13 2010

Hosts Nathan Paul and Marvin Quijada promised this bit of vaudevillian debauchery from Silent Theatre Company would make me "laugh, cry, and get an erection"--and they got everything but the anatomy right. X-rated incarnations of Penn and Teller, Paul and Quijada serve up quirky acts featuring different local artists each week. The show I saw was full of clever titillation, starting with the grotesquely humorous performance art of Dean Evans and Molly Plunk. Song, dance, mimes, and audience participation abounded until the show's arousing piece de resistance: Lady Jack disrobing with classic burlesque finesse. --Marissa Oberlander
