Jack Milo’s Baggy Pants Burlesque opens on Dec. 28, 2011 at Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre, 9301 Michigan Road, Indianapolis, for just ten performances through Jan. 8, 2012.

This is a fun and flirty new show that takes audiences back to the best of playful Vaudeville entertainment, starring stars Beef & Boards funny men Doug Stark and Jeff Stockberger, along with Milo himself. All tickets are $49 (the $75 New Year’s Eve performance is sold out). Tickets include Chef Odell Ward’s dinner buffet, coffee, tea and lemonade. Parking is free.

While Beef & Boards is giving the production a PG-13 rating, and Milo agrees it’s “definitely not for little kids,” the show harkens back to original burlesque fun.

“Burlesque became an offshoot of Vaudeville, and they decided to go a little more racy with it,” Milo said. “People have expectations of a strip show, and it isn’t that. It’s basically comedy sketches and musical numbers. There’s a lot of double entendres and off-color jokes. It’s all innuendo. We don’t say cuss words; we don’t do any of that.”

Rather, he describes the show as “fun, fast and furious.”

“People should expect to laugh their butts off,” Milo said of his show. “They should expect old-time burlesque.”
