Jingle Belles & A Few Balls — This Weekend

Tickets are still available for Perishable Theatre’s annual holiday extravaganza and fundraiser — a fun evening of camp, burlesque and sexy door prizes. (I’ve attended this show for a couple of years now — it’s the real deal. These ladies know how to strip, and tease, and twirl ’em.) This year’s theme is the supernatural.

“Deca*Go*Go: The Exquisite Corpse Plays” opens at Perishable Theatre tomorrow.  It’s 10 plays in 90 minutes, which is great both for people with ADD and spouses who hate long plays.  The explanation of Deca*Go*Go is pretty odd: This ninety-minute dreamscape features talking mice, gorgons, soothsayers, gods and goddesses, bowler hats, space aliens, illicit substances, Hindu funerals,
