About this show

Come to the place where Mystery sits at a table with Elegance, and Imagination orders a round of drinks before dinner, a world where those drinks are served by a pompous clown. Join Pinchbottom on a sensual quest for Pretençión, an imaginary yet sexy element that turns burlesque performers from "Jerkques" (ordinary people) into self-important "Cirques": infuriatingly magical, unendurably spellbinding artistes who peel away the mundane with every layer of clothing. Step into the world of Pretençión -- but be careful not to trip on the magic.

Featuring a bicostal all-headliner cast of bump and grind superstars: Angie Pontani, Broadway Brassy, Dirty Martini, Jo "Boobs" Weldon, Jonny Porkpie, Julie Atlas Muz, Kristina Nekyia, Lux La Croix, Mat "Sealboy" Fraser, Tansy, Tigger!, Trixie Little & The Evil Hate Monkey, and more!
