Pastie Delight

100 Burlesque Shows in Brookline

UD - Coolidge Corner Theatre Burlesque Marathon You’ve been known to go overboard from time to time.

You purchased a GPS for your car that speaks Swahili. You never go skiing unless the words “30 days” and “Swiss Alps” are involved. You just bought the three-disc Blu-ray edition of Avatar.

Which leads us to believe that you may be interested in eight straight hours of burlesque. With women. And puppets.

Welcome to the Burlesque Marathon, an overnight smorgasbord of more than 100 performances involving pasties, tassels and a languorous drumbeat, happening this Saturday in Brookline.

So picture it: it’s Saturday. You and your stripper-friendly pals have just spent a couple blood-thinning hours at the bars. You’ll head into the Coolidge Corner Theatre, take your seats up close to the stage and sit back as an eight-hour cavalcade of old-time naughtiness commences before your eyes.

You’ll get some group dances courtesy of the Boston Babydolls. You’ll be treated to something called “slapstick burlesque” (because you’ve always felt the Three Stooges could have benefitted from Shemp taking his clothes off). And for the first time since the sex scene in Team America, you’ll get turned on by some scantily clad puppets.

And should you need a smoke or some air during this relentless onslaught of disrobement, you’ll be happy to know that you can come and go as you please once inside.

You may want to schedule a post-puppet diner run at 3am.
