Mr. Bones MCs an Evening Filled With “Boo-tifuL” Burlesque and Halloween-Themed Variety Acts
CHICAGO – The Kiss Kiss Cabaret (KKC) proudly presents its annual “Peek-A-Boo: An Ooky Spooky Halloween Burlesque” (“Peek-A-Boo”), Fridays September 28 through October 26 at 11 p.m. at the Greenhouse Theater Center, 2257 N. Lincoln. Hosted by Mr. Bones, “Peek-A-Boo” showcases Halloween-themed burlesque performances by special guests Red Rum, Sauda Namir, Viva La Muerte and Ammunition. The evening concludes with an eye-popping, glow-in-the-dark finale, inspired by the song, “Red Right Hand”.
The Kiss Kiss Cabaret was originally conceived when producers Chris O. Biddle and Jenn A. Kincaid created the first “Peek-A-Boo” burlesque show in October, 2009 at the Greenhouse Theater Center. The success of that five-week run was the impetus for forming the current weekly revue.

“I love what burlesque has to offer the audience,” said Chris O.
Biddle, creator and director of “The Kiss Kiss Cabaret”. “I
can’t think of any other art form that mixes comedy and sensuality the
way burlesque does. Our show is a modern performance, yet it pays
homage to the past. If you went back in time to the 1920’s and saw a
show at Minsky’s burlesque in New York City, you would see a show
similar to what ‘The Kiss Kiss Cabaret’ offers.”

Not too shy to try an evening of dancing with your partner? My husband and I may enjoy a cocktail before hitting the dance floor to ease any apprehension we may have but all in all, Chicago Summerdance is another fun and free way to spend your Date Night.
Every Thursday thru Sunday, starting June 17th and running through the end of August, many styles of dance will performed and taught by 42 professional instructors: Salsa, Jazz, Cha Cha,Waltz and several others. Summerdance takes place at the south end of Grant Park, along Michigan Avenue in the Spirit of Music Garden.
Lessons and dancing start at 6:00 Thursday thru Saturday, ending at 9:30 pm; Sunday classes run from 4:00-7:00 pm.
If you actually have a babysitter that can stay longer than the 3 hours your dance experience will use, take advantage. We’ve walked over to the Hilton after a class and enjoyed an Irish meal/beverage at Kitty O’Sheas. We’ve even lucked out and made it in there on a couple nights they’ve had live music.
My husband doesn’t feel so guilty drinking a Guinness after he’s been ‘exercising’ on the dance stage.
