Listen, human beings are crazy old animals. We've decoded genomes, we've explored the ocean floor, and we've sent tough little robots rolling across Mars — and yet throw a pair of twins in lingerie onstage and we can't even remember our phone numbers. Experience this mysterious power for yourself when Chicago's tantalizing twins, Mina Mechante and Deirdre Doll, take the stage at the St. Louis Burlesque Showcase
. Local favorites Mimi Le Yu, Foxy la Feelion and Lola van Ella are also part of the show, which features a stronger focus on the Vaudeville element of burlesque. Showtime is 9 p.m. at Off Broadway (3509 Lemp Avenue; www.offbroadwaystl.com
), and tickets are $15.
