Rollin' Outta Here Naked: A Big Lebowski Burlesque 

When: Saturdays. Continues through Sept. 26 2009
Price: $15
The local resurgence of burlesque often seems to be fueled less by leering demand than by a supply-side yearning for outlets for sexual expression. Vaudezilla Productions spares us both sides of the equation by linking up with another cult phenomenon, The Big Lebowski, in a production that's uproarious, absurd, and almost incidentally sexy. The revue captures the film's sun-baked zen with mercifully little dialogue, while offering the outrageous--and oddly titillating--spectacle of characters like Walter (the John Goodman role on-screen, played here by a body-padded Wham Bam Pam) stripping down to pasties and G-string. By never claiming to be anything other than wonky fun, Vaudezilla sheds the desperate tone that shrouds other shows. --Keith Griffith
