Seasonal Special Happenings

Look What I See

When: Fri., March 4 2011

Old-fashioned fan dancing meets the traveling side show tonight in Akron, as the Pretty Things Peep Show takes the stage with striptease, sword swallowing, and the diminutive Li'l Miss Firefly — aka, the "Midget of Mischief" — who escapes from straitjackets and walks on broken glass, although maybe not in that order. In any case, it's all in a night's work for this traveling troupe out of N.Y.C. Other than emcee Donny Vomit, whose talents include juggling and fire eating, all the members are gals, giving rise to the "pretty things" sobriquet. The girls plus Donny have performed at more than 300 shows in the past two years, including Ozzfest 2010. Tonight, they'll be joined by local lovelies Bella Sin and Terra Incognita from Cleveland's Le Femme Mystique burlesque troupe for an 18-and-over show that should be as arousing as it is arresting. Tickets are $10; snag 'em at the door or online at Musica is at 51 East Market St., in Akron; for more information call 330-374-1114 or get a preview eyeful at — Elaine T. Cicora
