Polylust takes a bow with Queering History, an educational striptease showcase at Will's Pub


Was Abraham Lincoln gay? How high did Betsy Ross let her freak flag fly? Just how many licks did it take to get to the center of Percy Bysshe Shelley’s tootsie pop? The Polylust burlesque troupe is taking to the stage in its final two performances to help you answer some of history’s burning mysteries. These lovable ragamuffins have been blasting Orlando’s underground with their queer-and-body-positive shows for the past two years, but now, they’re turning into butterflies and scattering to the wind. This cabaret-style farewell performance will feature eight striptease performances punctuated by bawdy theatrical skits starring the stodgy icons of yesteryear. So strap in, strap on (if that’s your thing), and get ready for a freaky-weird romp into the annals of history.

9 p.m. Sunday-Monday, Nov. 1-2 | Will’s Pub, 1042 N. Mills Ave. | willspub.org | $5
