Who knew that our great state of Virginia had a favorite stripper doctor? Dr. Ophelia Derriere claims the title while taking a break from her medical residency to examine a few bumps and grinds in the burlesque show Advanced Anatomy. Derriere, who gets backing from the New Orleans jazz act Soggy Po’ Boys, says that after years of leading a double life in Richmond, Boston and New York, she’s decided to come out of the medical supply closet and assume her destiny.

Thursday 8/11. $12-50, 7pm. The Jefferson Theater, 110 E. Main St., Downtown Mall. 245-4980.
