Tickled Fancy Burlesque Co.

. June 5, 2012.

There is no shortage of quality entertainment in Ann Arbor, so why not explore the boundaries of visual, auditory and perhaps sensual stimulation that this town has to offer? The Tickled Fancy Burlesque Co. may be just the ticket to quench one’s thirst for something different. This troupe of fabulous men and ladies perform a menagerie of wondrous feats that includes hula hoops, clowns, musical revues with just the right amount of campy humor and sexuality. The show is reminiscent of good ol’ timey vaudeville revues with the flair of the new millennium.  Voted Washtenaw County’s number one Theatre Performance Group in 2009 and 2010 by Current readers, this show should dazzle audiences and spark the desire for more new experiences. Also appearing are Super Happy Funtime Burlesque and DJ Body Rock. $10/$13 under 21. 9:30pm. Blind Pig, 208 S. First St., Ann Arbor. 734-996-8555. www.tickledfancy.com
