New York Ghostheads, nerds, and lady aficionados take note; Friday, June 11th and 12th, Epic Win Burlesque will be putting on Ghostbusters! (They actually call it Ghostbusters!, with the exclamation mark, but it is also a little cool and deserves it.)
EPIC WIN Burlesque strives to be the nerdiest burlesque show in town, having produced sexy and geeky tributes to electronic interactive entertainments (“Video Game Vixens”), Saturday morning animation (“CARTOONS!”) and the Caped Crusader (“Holy Shit…BATMAN!”) since forming in late 2009.
Summer is upon us, and with it comes Hollywood blockbuster season. This month, the shameless geeks of EPIC WIN pay homage to one of the biggest popcorn flicks of all time, the 1984 Ivan Reitman masterpiece Ghostbusters. Paranormal investigators Nelson Lugo and Schaffer the Darklord host an expedition into the creepiest corners of New York City in search of things that go bump-n-grind in the night. Your PKE meters will spike as the boys encounter sexy and spooky performances from the likes of NYC burlesque superstars Bonnie Voy’age, Lefty Lucy, Miss Mary Cyn, BB Heart, Victoria Privates and Magdalena Fox! Plus, stage kitten Jenny C’est Quoi as Janine Melnitz!
This titillating tribute to the oft-quoted classic promises nerdery and nudity with appearances from Zuul, Gozer, the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man and many other foxy full-torso apparitions. Don’t cross the streams.
Who you gonna cat-call?
