Crime is rampant, villainy abounds, the social order is crumbling — this city needs heroes. Yes, police and teachers are "heroes," but the populace needs something more...dramatic. Superheroes. Men and women ready to enter a shadowed alcove and strip off their street clothes to reveal the brightly colored outfits of the caped crime fighter — and then strip off those outfits to reveal svelte, toned physiques adorned with naught but pasties and G-strings. That's right: In our hour of greatest need, the Randy Dandies transform once again into the Uncanny Dandies to perform A Comic Strip burlesque phantasmagoria. Mimi Le Yu, Vanity Flair and Roxy Red Rockets lead the never-ending battle against crime, boredom and those "no shirt, no shoes, no service" signs with another night of burlesque delights and boylesque comedy at 10 p.m. at Off Broadway (3509 Lemp Avenue; www.offbroadwaystl.com). Tickets are $10 at the door.
