Lowbrow!

Despite numerous letters of protest, Under the Gun Theater brings you "Lowbrow!" This absurdist cabaret is the best of the worst and weirdest! Puppets? Sure! Interpretive dance? Probably! Entertainment? No comment! With a new show every month, "Lowbrow!" is unpredictable, uncensored, and most likely unrehearsed. Critics have hailed it as "Confusing!" and "A show that starts at 10pm."

Plan 9: CONvergence

Plan 9 Burlesque was founded in 2012 by a rag tag group of nerds with an affinity for nudity. They wanted to create a space where burlesque and fandom come together to produce innovative, creative, and bonkers performance art. Since then, they have perverted comic book heroes, sci-fi super stars, beloved children's cartoons and fantastical fairy tales. Nothing is sacred.
