The choreography and tone of this 1980s nostalgia revue could both use more variation. But that may be expecting too much of what's essentially an excuse to see some naughty bits. Or the suggestion of naughty bits, anyway: For all its cheek and high-energy stripping, Leslie Kerrigan's Flaming Dames burlesque show is a no-nudity affair. Michael Rigoli and Sam Brown provide adequate comedy as the evening's emcees, marking time in between one pastie-shaking number and the next. Still, their characters--a glam rocker and an Adam Sandler-esque dweeb--aren't as funny as the best of the dance routines. The use of prop stalls in the "Smokin' in the Boy's Room" opener is particularly clever. --Dan Jakes
