Burlesque Downtown Underground's multitalented troupe of performers struts onto the stage as the house lights begin to dim slowly over their annual Valentine's-inspired showcase, Aphrodite Awakened. After exchanging obligatory smooches and gifts with a sweetheart, attendees drop into Off Center Theatre, where the cast's silhouettes sashay to sultry tunes and scintillating choreography, ideal for testing if a stubborn mannequin is ever going to open its eyes. Special guests GoGo McGregor and Dr. Sick, of the New Orleans-based troupe VagaBandits, add an extra dose of heat to the vaudevillian spectacle, drawing from a repertoire that ranges from classy burlesque dancing to raunchy sideshow stunts. Following the performance, guests pose for a picture with the cast, seizing the opportunity to compliment Foxy Von Trap on her singing and Ivory Wilde on her convincing air-harp skills.
