Last night, completely on the spur of the moment, C. and I went to see the final Chicago showing of Margaret Cho's Sensous Woman: a Sinsational New Variety Show.

It was awesome!

Small venue, so while there were no bad seats in the house, we ended up in the second row, center seats.

The show was a mix of comedy and burlesque. Ms. Cho said she came up with it to show that every woman is beautiful, no matter how much they differ from the ridiculous definition of beauty that we get from tv, movies, and magazines. So, there was a little person burlesque dancer, a plus-size burlesque dancer (who was incredibly hot), a transgender comic, and other queer performers. Oh, and Kelly was there! (I love Let Me Borrow That Top.)

The show is going to be off-Broadway as of the 26th (along with, randomly, a show in Flint, MI on my birthday). Go see it if you can!
