Strippin' Around the Christmas Tree
On the sliding scale between "naughty" and "nice," Santa usually ranks as sweet as the cookies he gorges himself on. But as Peep-show Menagerie plans to prove, nothing changes that quite like candy-cane G-strings -- and Martians. The monthly burlesque show-case rings in the holidays with notable names from Oklahoma to Tokyo, all of whom will strip past their stockings for a show that matches the North Pole with the fourth planet from the Sun. Spoiler alert: 'Twas the Night Martians Invaded Burlesque lives up to its title. Santa's little helpers put on a ho-ho show in front of an extraterrestrial audience, things get weird, and people get naked(ish).
