Splits on silks; tits on tightropes; pasties on platforms. Burlesque and cirque are a match made in sexytime heaven. The circus arts already have sexy women on swings, so why not add a little strip tease? If you’re into that sort of thing, Viva Dallas Burlesque hosts its mind-numbingly frequent Cirque du Burlesque night at Lakewood Theater (1825 Abrams Pkwy) at 8 p.m. Friday. Emcee Violet O’ Hara sports her shock pink hair and introduces women as they perform sideshow stunts while shaking their cha-chas. Tickets start at $20 and can be found, along with more information and boudoir photos at vivadallasburlesque.com.
