Decadence? Mais Oui.

You know what the Beggar's Carnivale is, but you never know what that modern burlesque spectacle will do next. With Le Maison de Decadence, the Beggars go beyond big into grand: Think Technicolor, big-budget musical set in a Victorian brothel. The show melds burlesque, vaudeville, music hall and cirque performance to create a constantly exploding kaleidoscope of sight and sound. Featured performers include Midnite Martini, Ray Gunn, Jeez Loueez, the Knock-a-bouts, and of course, Lola Van Ella. The entire thing is scored live by the Three Penny Orchestra. Le Maison de Decadence takes place at 9 p.m. at the Casa Loma Ballroom (3354 Iowa Avenue; www.casalomaballroom.com), and tickets are $20 to $50.
