Red Light Variety Show has covered a lot of thematic ground during its time in Boise, chewing through most major holidays, noir cinema, nostalgia and video games. Now that it's getting around to travel, it seems almost like an omission: After all, isn't travel one of life's great eye openers? Is not variety the spice of life?
It's better to be late to the party than to not make it at all, but Boiseans have plenty of time to gear up for the latest RLVS adventure, "Uncharted Odyssey," which kicks off with a pay-what-you-want preview Sept. 11 and runs through Sept. 27. And though the burlesque/comedy/modern dance/acrobatics troupe is packing its bags to take fans on Amazonian treks, global circumnavigations and the seven seas, we—the viewing public—can catch all the action at RLVS' usual venue: the Visual Arts Collective.
Show dates are Sept. 12,13, 19, 20, 26 and 27. Doors open at 8 p.m. and the shows start at 9 p.m. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.
