It's 2019 and in a dystopian future, Cherry Pitz' is still running Hotsy Totsy Burlesque at The Home for Wayward Girls Fallen Women and Androids. Ex-police officer Rick Deckard, whose job as a "Blade Runner" is to track down bioengineered beings known as replicants and "retire" them, has been sent on a mission to find out if Cherry is human or a replicant.


Will Cherry be retired or will Rick Decker fall for her charms and pronounce her thoroughly human?  You’ll have to show up to find out!


Hosted by Cherry Pitz and Handsome Brad, with performances by Brief Sweat, Candy Apples, Le Grand Chaton, Lilin, Puss & Boots and more!


On the footsteps of Hotsy Totsy Burlesque’s successful Harry Potter, Disney and Star Wars 1978 Holiday Special tribute shows, Cherry Pitz and Joe the Shark present a burlesque tribute to 1982’s groundbreaking science fiction classic Blade Runner.  Directed by Ridley Scott and based on Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, Blade Runner is a Sci-fi slash Noir film about a cop named Rick Deckard in a decrepit 2019 Los Angeles whose job it is to "retire" four genetically engineered syborgues, known as "Replicants".  With a cast of truly unique characters, it’s rip for a Hotsy Totsy Burlesque tribute!


Ten  years ago, Cherry Pitz and Joe the Shark partnered up to produce Hosty Totsy Burlesque and it’s been a fabulous ride! We play to often sold-out shows and our dedicated fans gleefully follow the soap opera that is Hotsy Totsy often declaring after each performance, “That was best show you folks have ever done!” As performers and writers we have grown as a troupe and as friends and are happy to move into our 11th year looking forward to the rhinestones, glitter and mayhem the next 10 years shall bring!


Every month you are invited to 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 they have had to combat Daleks, Darth Vader, The Borg, Zombies, Network Censors, Evil from other dimensions and He Who Should Not Be Named! The ladies 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!

 “And if not everyone in the audience understands the inside jokes, deep cuts and nods to source material, that’s O.K. — the performers’ sincerity and the audience’s excitement are entertainment enough.” - New York Times
