Youre well versed in the vodkas and gins of the bar, but absinthe is one highly potent brew that flies under the radar. Until now. Legend has it that if you take a sip of the fabled green-tinted elixir, your mind will journey to places your eyes havent seen. Its only right that a show of the same name would have just about the same effect on your psyche the only difference is, beneath the yards of brocade and dozens of mirrors of Spiegelworld, what youre seeing is real. In this sultry circus presentation of Absinthe, transvestite divas will serenade you, trapeze artists will seduce you from high in the air, and your libido just might pulse in appreciation.
This past summer the show titillated sold-out audiences in New York with risqué fun thats more intimate than Cirque du Soleil, but kept crowds safe from unwanted lap-play better than the bouncers at Tootsies. Dont let the giddy atmosphere and cotton-candy colors fool you -- this show is adults-only. No worries if the sitter bails; the show runs until February 17. Tickets cost $69 -- even the price is kinky! Tonights performance begins at 8. Visit www.spiegelworld.com for tickets and additional showtimes.
