Best Theatre Bet: “Squirm Burpee: A Vaudevillian Melodrama”


When Denver brothers Mike and Dan Huling, and their bewitching vaudeville group, the Handsome Little Devils, take the Oriental Theater stage this week, you’ll feel as if you’ve landed in Tim Burton’s movie Big Fish.

Just like the film, the brothers’ Squirm Burpee circus show weaves eccentric characters, 1920s style, and colorful stage props. The duo also tosses in a bit of juggling and Marx brothers-like slapstick.

Thu 8 p.m.; Fri 7:30 p.m. The Oriental Theater, 4335 W. 44th Ave., $15, 303-455-2124, buy tickets
