The curtain at the new Alley Theater will be lifted Tuesday for something equally as strange and compelling as the quirky local theater company — the Pretty Things Peepshow. The touring burlesque/sideshow act features sword swallowers, famous pin-up models, belly dancers, magic, a human blockhead, little people and lots more. The folks behind the Peepshow will attempt to merge the dark, seedy side of carnival sideshows with the sexy, flirtatious ways of classic burlesque. It’s an interesting choice that Alley Theater picked this event to show off their new 90-seat venue at 633 W. Main St., but from the looks of their upcoming season, there are a lot more surprises in store. —Sara Havens
