Remember the days when nerds clad in black hoodies were forced to conduct elaborate nighttime panty raids in order to get a little action? How times have changed. These days, poindexters from Rivers Cuomo to Zooey Deschanel are getting the kind of play guys like Lewis Skolnick could only dream about. Demonstrating how things have come full circle for dorks, Voluptuous Entertainment presents Nerdy Burlesque at the Curtis Theater. Brought to you by a troupe of seven sassy, plus-sized beauties sexfully celebrating all things geek, the show features entire numbers dedicated to such themes as Dungeons and Dragons, Star Wars, and Super Mario Brothers. Though this gig promises to celebrate the socially awkward, we’re pretty sure even the jocks in the crowd will pull a few boners.
