Perhaps you remember the big-in-the-80s-fad of Choose Your Own Adventure books. These analog relatives of the then-popular interactive fiction computer games such as Zork and Colossal Cave Adventure gave you either/or options every few pages that allowed you to determine the outcome of each book. The drawback to these things was the obvious dearth of graphics -- a problem thats been solved in nifty fashion by the Randy Dandies
with their first-ever Choose Your Own Adventure burlesque show, The Last of the Glamazons
. Dandy Jack Deuce will serve as narrator, offering you options as you go in search of the sexy Glamazons, who will provide eye-popping graphics of the sort never seen in a CYA book (ah, if only
). Choose wisely, or you may run into trouble; it will undoubtedly be trouble of the disrobing sort, but still -- your goal is the Glamazons, so stay focused on the mission. The Last of the Glamazons takes place at 9:30 p.m. at the Firebird (2706 Olive Street; www.firebirdstl.com
). Special guests the Musical Blades, a ribald pirate singing group, open the show. Tickets are $12 to $15, and if you wear a CYA-type costume to the show youll receive a prize.
