A Nude Hope: A Sci-Fi Burlesque Adventure
Been looking for love in Alderaan places?
We invite you to join us a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away with acclaimed fandom theatre troupe Geekenders, who are concentrating their usual pop culture theatre, comedy and burlesque into a glittering, playfully sensual two-act reboot of a sci-fi classic.
Featuring a cast of seventeen of Geekenders all-star nerdlesque performers, the event and theatre troupe is pulling out all the stops to ensure a memorable, sexy, nerd-herding night for geeks of all types.Geekenders brings back the first installment of their epic burlesque adventure trilogy, as seen on Chris Hardwick's @midnight, with a Vegas-style spectacular that combines striptease, comedy, dance, showgirls, vaudeville, nostalgia, and space.
With the Storm Troopers:
BUY YOUR TICKETS NOW! The original production of this show saw 2,000 audience members in four days, with hundreds turned away at the door! This is your LAST CHANCE EVER to see Geekenders perform their acclaimed Star Wars burlesque! (http://nudehope.brownpapertickets.com/)
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."
"From a not so scary Darth Vader, to a yummy Lando Calrissian, a swaggering braggadocio Han and independent Leia, athletic Yoda, a Justin Bieber Luke Skywalker to the awesomely cute pair of a rollerblading R2D2 and C3PO, and oh those Stormtrooper troops, this is a Star Wars cosplayer's fantasy dream."
"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."
"Empire Strips Back is an ambitious, riotous, scandalous production that shows just how powerful a small group of dedicated people can be."
