[ cabaret/comedy ]
With a month left in election season, The Dumpsta Players are offering comfort for the politically fatigued. In Silence of the Shams, DJ K-Tell’s troupe takes down the twin horrors of right wingnuts and American materialism. No word on the appearance of Romneys or Ryans, but monsters from Michelle Bachmann to Jerry Sandusky will find their fates on the line. If the truth about Marcus is not enough for Michelle, perhaps a face-off with the infamous Venus Xtravaganza in the Salem Bitch Trials will be.
Wed., Oct. 17, 10 p.m., $1.99, Bob & Barbara’s, 1509 South St., dumpstaplayers.org.
