Excelsior Burlesque presents: Higher Education  | Open: 09/10/13 Close: 09/10/13
On Tuesday, September 10th, at 9pm, Excelsior Burlesque welcomes the coeds with a very special back to school spectacular! You'll be on the edge of your seat and yelling for more pencils, books, and even the teacher's very, very dirty looks as we remind you of what you dreamed of doing down behind the bleachers.

Co-producers Moe Cheezmo and Ruby Solitaire (who both stayed in school far longer than was reasonable) have gotten together the sexiest group of students and teachers this side of Degrassi. The show features Mary Cyn and Stella Chuu in their plaid-skirted best, as two schoolgirls with two very different problems. Minnie D'Moocha will be there to keep order amongst the rabble . . . maybe she's the one who put Kitty Katastrophe in the corner? Dot Mitzvah is definitely more than a girl's best friend and Ruby Solitaire will show you what she discovered on her summer vacation.

Helena Backseat and and Roxanne St. John will be staying after class and making their freshman Excelsior appearances clapping erasers and gogo-ing for your intermission delight!

Cherry Pitz and Joe the Shark are proud to bring you another new episode of Hotsy Totsy Burlesque, sponsored by SAILOR JERRY SPICED RUM!

In the mythical land of Westeros, seven noble families fight for the Iron Throne. There are tales of horrors in the North, and rumors that the Dragons live again. Whispers run throughout the streets and alleyways of the capital about the Home For Wayward Maids and Fallen Wenches, and the simple girl drinking Sailor Jerry's Spiced Rum with the mysteriously pink hair. King Joffrey believes that she is a threat to be dealt with either through marriage or through death. And Cherry Pitz is about to discover with great power comes pig crap lots and lots of pig crap.

PS: The Khaleesi wants to know "Where are my dragons and why are they pink?!?"

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 they have had to combat gangsters, human-animal hybrids, intergalactic space travelers, zombies, televangelists, snake oil salesmen and Sarah Palin. The girls feel certain that 2012 will be a much smoother year, but even if it isn't, they 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
