Planning to watch Madonna‘s live concert on HBO (Sat., Nov. 20, 10:15 p.m. ET)? Be advised: Despite the tour’s red-light name—The Girlie Show—and some risqué moments, this is not Madonna‘s usual Disco Night in Tijuana. It’s a surprisingly sophisticated show, with great stage design and costumes, provocative choreography and fresh musical arrangements (for instance, her phlegmatic Marlene Dietrich vamp through “Like a Virgin”). But what’s with Madonna‘s scraggly Steve McQueen haircut? It adds five hard years to her looks.
