Boobs and Goombas on Display for Two More Months (photos)

If you’re still having a tough time coming to terms with the reality that — no matter which warp zone you take — come December, Nintendo Power will be no more, fear not; the Mushroom Kingdom has heard your pleas and is prepared to unveil a power-up that not even King Koopa himself can crush…

Due to popular demand, you can now feast your weary eyes on the sultry spectacle of Boobs and Goombas: A Super Mario Burlesque for two more months! The scantly-clad homage to the greatest 8-bit hero to ever lay it on the line for the love of Princess Peach will be on display Fridays and Saturdays, September 7-15 and September 28-October 27 at the Shadowbox Theatre.

Tickets are $15 and available at the door or in advance from the Shadow Box Theatre’s website. If you still fear the fate of brave Mario — and are at least 18 years of age — the troupe contents that if you come bearing coins, a titillating alternate ending awaits. The Shadowbox Theatre is located at 2400 St. Claude Avenue.
