There Will Be Zombies 

Comments
Ed Wood's 1959 sci-fi flop, Plan 9 From Outer Space, is considered one of the worst films ever made, but that hasn't stopped the cult classic from being referenced by everyone from punk band The Misfits to the writers of Seinfeld to Tim Burton, whose 1994 Ed Wood celebrated the cross-dressing film director. Now you can add to the list of tributes a three-act burlesque revue that loosely follows the movie's plot. After debuting Flying Saucers Over Burlesque! two years ago, local producer Peepshow Menagerie has resurrected its most popular show, combining all the flying saucers, reanimated corpses, aliens and grave robbers of the original movie with strip teases from Vamp Lorraine as Vampira, Donatella MeLies as an atomic octopus and other show stealers including a 50-foot zombie. Even Ed Wood himself makes a cameo in this titillating satire, but co-producer Chris Beyond is tight-lipped: "There will be an angora sweater, that's all I'll say." Fais Do-Do, 5253 W. Adams Blvd., Mid-City.; Fri., April 19; doors open 9 p.m., music starts 9:45; $12. (323) 931-4636, peepshowmenagerie.com.
