Last night at the Mayan, luchadores jumped from ropes, rings, and balconies and often directly into the audience. Between bouts, the crowd was presented with titillating striptease and burlesque performances that kept the heart pounding. Blaine Capatch and Tom Kenny, the voice of Spongebob Squarepants and many other beloved cartoon characters, provided comedic relief from the theatrical performances.
