    Lucha Va Voom: Calling All Monsters

    The Poubelle Twins ooh-la-la lay down the fierceness at Lucha Va Voom, this week at The Mayan

    Luchadores, masked, theatrical and ready to grapple in breathtaking wrestling bouts. Seductive temptresses, barely clothed and throwing come-hither looks. And wall-to-wall jokes. Does Lucha Va Voom, that several-times-yearly wrestling/burlesque/comedy wonder, even need a cherry on top of what is already a sundae doused in syrup and marshmallows? In October, yes, and that cherry is a cavalcade of Halloween-flavored thrills, chills and thrown-over-the-shoulder spills.

    The much-loved Mexican wrestling-meets-striptease spectacular gets a seasonal sprinkling of spookiness at its Calling All Monsters showdown, thanks in part to appearances by Frankenstein and Chupacabra (the goat sucker!), not to mention a tumbler performed under the mysterious, eerie rays of black light. Burlesque divas Lux LaCroix and Lucy Fur ("The Tassle-Twirl Queen") are also on the bill, while those in it just for the laughs can expect a barrage of over-the-top yuks from the fast-talking commentators. And our favorite bad girls Bibi and Fifi Poubelle are slated to dole out their fierce brand of not-so-sweet justice to anyone who crosses their paths.

    We think of Lucha as kind of Halloween-y all year long, so we can only imagine how much the ante gets upped for this skin-tingling showstopper.
