J’Adore

Once you're past buying the Spongebob Valentine collection at the drug store, it's time to consider more adult celebrations. And what says "be mine" in our ironical age better than an evening of burlesque? Whether you're out on the town with one special someone, or part of a heart-shaped group, you've got choices when it comes to creative disrobing. Down at the Triple Door, The Atomic Bombshells might keep their feet on the floor in J'Adore (through Saturday), but their costumes certainly fly away. Lily Verlaine and Jasper McCann are the ringleaders of this particular group, with guests Ben DeLaCrème and Waxie Moon. Still going strong with its astonishing costumes and double entendre, the burlesque revival offers a deep mastery of traditional entertainment styles plus with a liberated attitude about gender and sexuality. Which is certainly another way to describe 21st-century romance. Through Sat. SANDRA KURTZ

Feb. 14-16, 7 & 10 p.m., 2013
