Like a dreidal out of Vegas, Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad comes home for the holidays at The Zipper Factory now through Dec 24. Nice Jewish Girls Gone Bad is a refreshing mix of comedy, music, spoken-word and show-stopping burlesque featuring gals—including Ophira Eisenberg, Poppi Kramer, Jessica Wood and Sister Schmalz—who learned to smoke at Hebrew School, got drunk at their Bat-Mitzvahs and would rather have more schtuppa than the chupah.

The Lesbian Overtones, the most stimulating a cappella group in the world, bring a new toe-tapping holiday show, The Lesbian Overtones’ (Interfaith) Holiday Spectacular to the Green Room Dec 18. Expect your favorite holiday songs as only the Lesbian Overtones can render them, and of course all that lesbian drama you’ve come to expect from…lesbians. Immediately following is Erin Markey’s solo musical, Puppy Love: A Stripper’s Tail, which chronicles Bridget’s journey from aspiring Chuck E. Cheese impersonator to pole-dancing stripper at Déjà vu Showgirls and Love Boutique.

La Mama Experimental Theater Club presents the holiday theatrical variety show The Baby Janes—Holiday Kisses XXOX, now through Dec 23. Come party with the Baby Janes on the quadruple trapeze, featuring sensational aerial artists, sexy dancers, funky live music and singing, and lots of kisses. From burlesque to ballroom, from aerial to eclectic acts…anything goes with the Baby Janes.
