A young drifter, Naomi Longtime, arrives in the Big Apple to become a burlesque dancer and soon sets about clawing and pushing and stabbing his way to the top of the New York boylesque community. Can even the good natured, but dim witted, Cherry Pitz put a stop to his misbehavior?
Following on the footsteps of Hotsy Totsy Burlesque’s successful Doctor Who, Mad Men, Game of Thrones and Star Wars 1978 Holiday Special tribute shows, Cherry Pitz and Joe the Shark proudly present a burlesque tribute to director Paul Verhoeven’s campy Rotten Tomato classic, Showgirls. We are New York’s only episodic, monthly burlesque show featuring a different script each month and a rotating cast. Hotsy Totsy is a high camp soap opera featuring some of the best burlesque talent New York has to offer.
Featuring performances by Cherry Pitz, Francine, Gogo Gadget, Josh Taylor, Rosie Cheeks, The Lady Satine, plus gogo by Cynthia Sails and an appearance by Brad Lawrence. And not to be forgotten, Magic Pixie Dream Girl will be keeping the stage neat and tidy!
Every third Tuesday of the month, you are invited to the basement of The Home For Wayward Girls and Fallen Women. The residents of the home need money to keep their hotel open and to buy G-strings and glitter. Sadly, the shows have had their technical difficulties and in the past as they’ve had to combat, zombies, gangsters, human-animal hybrids, televangelists and snake oil salesmen. The performers promise you beautiful, clothing-averse women, lots of laughs, spinning tassels, and flying underpants. So join us for Hotsy Totsy Burlesque at The Home For Wayward Girls and Fallen Women where the motto is “We’ve fallen, we can’t get up, and we like it that way!”

It's a feeling of having stumbled into a bar outside of the space-time continuum, where the best bits of sexy 20th century aesthetics (early jazz, false eyelashes, garter belts) have been gathered together for some smart and sensual dancers to play with. - www.nytheatre.com
