In the grand tradition of 24 hour playwriting festivals (but naughtier!), this explosive event challenges an audacious cast of striptease stars to conceive, create, develop, and perform an entire scripted burlesque show in just 69 hours. Their countdown begins at 1:00am on Wednesday August 10th, when the concept, theme, or title of the show will be revealed to all. Then, the seconds tick away as these seven performers write a script, create, choreograph and costume new burlesque solos, duets, and group numbers, memorize their lines, and finally bring it all to the Coney Island stage (as best they can) at 10pm on Friday, August 12. Will it be a glorious hot mess? Or a bare-assed disaster? With a lineup this talented, one thing is certain: whatever happens, it's sure to be sexy, hilarious, and immensely entertaining.
Based on an idea by Fancy Feast, the 69 Hour Burlesque Challenge stars Anita Cookie, Miss Aurora Boobrealis, Boo Bess, Cerebral Pussy, Fancy Feast, Jo "Boobs" Weldon, Jonny Porkpie. With less than 3 days to make a masterpiece, they'd be flying by the seat of their pants... except they're not wearing any!
Tickets are $15 online, or at the door.
