Superboobs: A Superhero Burlesque Adventure

Saturdays, 10:30 p.m.

Suspension of disbelief is a necessary part of most theater, but using male pronouns for characters whose breasts are a major focus of the show takes the concept to another level. With this latest entry in a series of burlesque comedies playing on pop-culture classics like Super Mario Brothers and Indiana Jones, Gorilla Tango takes on superheroes: the Joker and his henchman carry out a villainous plot to rob Superman, Batman, Iron Man, and Wolverine of their superpowers. Why? Apparently evil doesn't need a reason. But the plot isn't the only part of the show that comes up short. While there are some laughs and a few charming touches (Batman's bat-shaped pasties are nice), the dance routines are uninspired. Indeed, the whole performance feels a bit, er, flat. Superboobs is part burlesque, part sketch comedy, but doesn't really succeed as either. —Julia Thiel $20
