Perhaps this listing belongs in comedy, but because it’s burlesque, I’m going with the cabaret section. Gorilla Tango is one of the most creative spots in town when it comes to cabaret, and, while the schedules change, the theater continues to put on hilarious, culture-poking burlesque shows aimed at the nerdy crowd, with themes that include Star Wars, Super Mario Bros., Batman, Indiana Jones, The Oregon Trail, and more. If you take your cabaret with a dose of humor, check out this small Bucktown haunt.
