Let’s face it: sometimes a movie just doesn’t cut it in terms of the full entertainment factor. Especially if the popcorn is stale. To jazz up your Saturday night plans (literally), consider stopping by the Le Cirque Rouge Cabaret and Burlesque Show at Amsterdam Bar and Hall. Established in 2003, LCR is one of the top variety show troupes in the Twin Cities. Featuring comedians, singers, and dancers backed by a live band, the group is praised by the press and loved by audiences. Officially say goodbye to the ol’ movie standby and get ready to “rouge your knees and roll your stockings down.” Saturday. Doors: 6:30 p.m., show: 7 p.m. $10. 21+. —RO
