The ladies of the Burlesque Downtown Underground have a present for you. Sure, theyre offering glimpses of their fishnetted thighs, waxed bodies, stiletto-heeled feet and tattooed figures, but they want you to spend your tip money on yourself. Though tickets for tonight's 8 p.m. performance of A Black Tie Cabaret With a Splash of Holiday! at City Stage Theater at Union Station (30 West Pershing Road, 816-460-2020) cost $20 for adults 18 and older and $18 for students, the women want you to stay in your seats for the two titillating hours and save your dollar bills unless you need a drink from the cash bar. The Burlesque Downtown Underground is made up of professional actors, singers and entertainers. This third holiday show by the troupe runs through the weekend, with double performances on both nights. See unionstation.org/ablacktiecabaret.html for tickets and more information.
