“3D glasses will not be provided,” warns the flyer from Penn’s male sketch comedy club. If you’re itching for some Mask & Wig, albeit with a superhero theme, their latest show is not to be missed. And of course, there’ll be dudes cross–dressing (as superwomen, we assume). Hey, they warned you.

If you haven’t jumped on the “Twin Peaks” bandwagon yet, now is the time.
