When the fiercely fun, fishnetted females of Scandalesque shimmy into Wrigley Mansion, theyll bring "a mix of classic burlesque and neo-burlesque -- a little bit more edgy feel," says the troupes Tarah Niccoli. (We say "edgy" don't begin to describe what these fire-spinning-ballet-trained-circus-artist types will do to ya.)
Drag queen Sofonda Cox hosts the 21-and-over decadence, which begins at 9 p.m. We've been shut out of Scandalesque before, so we recommend purchasing tix in advance at www.brownpapertickets.com or 800-838-3006. Admission ranges from $20 for your lonesome self to $200 for a front-row VIP table for four (where, Niccoli notes, "the girls will be making sure to pay extra-special attention to those people").
