The angelic-voiced chanteuse is transgender. The greasy-haired emcee is transgressive. The girl-on-girl aerial acts are transporting. For the second year in a row, this Barnum-meets-burlesque variety show crosses so many lines—including the one separating performers from audience—that you’ll need a sense of adventure just to take a seat in front of that bumbling knife juggler. It’s dangerous, intoxicating, and practically illegal. Like the sign says, it’s Absinthe.
