The Labyrinth: A Spectacular Burlesque Adventure!
A Burlesque Re-Imagining
From the minds that brought you Star Wars: A Nude Hope!
It's a Vegas-style spectacular meeting a beloved pop culture classic to create delicious, naughty alchemy.
Geekenders is back with a brand new grownup reinvention of a classic film about a young girl who finds herself in a fantastical world for a journey of sexual discovery, eighties glam rockers and sequined goblins.
Featuring a cast of twenty-one of Canada's nerdlesque glitterati, the "cult sensation" (Vancity Buzz) is creating bigger sets, fancier costumes, more elaborate dances and greater thetricality than Vancouver has seen from the troupe before, to take the 1986 Jim Henson classic about growing up, sexuality, and making hard cho-ices and turning all those themes up to eleven.
Geekenders productions have been touted by the Huffington Post, @midnight, Vancity Buzz, Yahoo Movies Uk, The Link, and Living Myth Media. Buy your tickets today, as they're sure to sell out!
With the Goblins:
Here's what the media has had to say about other Geekenders spectaculars:
"With the use of huge puppets, beautiful human x-wings and tie fighters, and explosions of confetti, this was both mind-blowing and epic. I am waiting impatiently for the return of fabulous dancing and singing, more (and better than our) puns, and tons of nostalgia and fandom with a cast that includes sexy appearances from Chewbacca, Darth, Han, R2D2, Luke, and many more, all crafting an impressive two-act adaptation of this classic cinematic masterpiece."
"Not only did The Wizard of Bras provide a rousing burlesque show, but through the use of innuendo, satire, and social commentary, Geekenders delivered a unique performance that appeals to a range of audiences."
Tickets are $25 at the door, or $22 in advance through Rio Theatre Tickets
