Heart, Minnie Tonka and Peekaboo Pointe, and guest commentary by secret Santa Albert Cadabra.
Hotsy Totsy Burlesque
Wednesday, December 28 @ 8pm
Joe the Shark and Cherry Pitz present New York’s only burlesque soap opera, featuring the finest burlesque and sideshow performers in NY. Chills, thrills, mellow-drama, ridiculous storylines and flying underpants!
Thursday, December 29 @ 8pm
Combining heart-wrenching, raw stories with burlesque acts, this show will tear out your soul and stomp on it with no regard for your well being. Featuring storytellers Rory Scholl, Brad Lawrence, Jen Lee and Peter Aguaro with burlesque by Dangrr Doll, Jenny C’est Quoi, BB Heart, and Mary Cyn.
Shocks & C*cks
Thursday, December 29 @ 10pm
Dubbed the “outrageous all-nude, all-dude revue”, the show returns with a brand-new holiday tale that will “warm the cockles of your heart”. The cast of the original Shocks & C*cks, including Tigger!, Mat Fraser, Hard Cory, Ferro and host Jonny Porkpie, return for a night of seasonal cheer. “It’s a stocking stuffer like no other!”
Storybook Burlesque: The Bible Show
Friday, December 30 @ 8pm & 10pm
From the Tree of Knowledge and Lazarus to the Plagues of Egypt and the Second Coming, the Bible Show re-imagines everything you thought you learned in Sunday school. This year, Storybook Burlesque takes a look at the darker side of the Bible, exploring this original horror classic with blasphemy and boobs. Skip church and let Storybook Burlesque save your soul!
