The Star Ship Enterprise, while making ill-conceived left around the sun has accidently gone back in time to 2013. Short on fule, the search for dilithium crystals leads Kirk and Spock to the Home For Wayward Girls And Fallen Women, where an ancient earth rite: a burlesque show is about to begin. While they search, Kirk finds himself seduced by the pink haired Cherry Pitz and the rest of the girls, Spock experiences Pon Farr and you’ll never guess where they find the crystals…

Following on the footsteps of Hotsy Totsy Burlesque’s successful Mad Men, Game of Thrones Big Lebowski and Star Wars 1978 Holiday Special tribute, Cherry Pitz and Joe the Shark proudly present a burlesque tribute to Stark Trek The Original Series! We are New York’s only episodic, monthly burlesque show featuring a different script each month and a rotating cast.  Hotsy Totsy is a high camp soap opera featuring some of the best burlesque talent New York has to offer.

 Featuring performances by Delirium Tremens, Melody Jane, Ruby Solitaire, Hazel Honeysuckle, Apathy Angel, Handsome Brad, Anna Kickarse & more!
