The Home For Wayward Girls and Fallen Women is overrun with Vampires! Thank goodness Buffy and her monster hunting team are here to help! But first they must blend in and so they have infiltrated the show telling Cherry they are a burlesque troupe from Sunnydale and they are here to fight evil and spin tassels!
Hosted by Handsome Brad & Cherry Pitz with performances by Le Grand Chaton, Mary Cyn, Matt Knife, Nina Marina and Johnny Caligula with Puss-n-Boots warming up the audience.
In 1997 Joss Whedon took television with the revolutionary Buffy the Vampire Slayer, changing how television was made and creating a feminist Icon that has inspired women of all ages. Hotsy Totsy Burlesque is pleased to be paying tribute to this all American favorite!
Cherry Pitz and Joe the Shark proudly present Hotsy Totsy Burlesque, 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. We specialize in sending up pop culture favorites, past hits include tributes to Harry Potter, Game Of Thrones, The Big Lebowski, the Muppets and our annual show celebrating the worst Christmas special every created: The Star Wars Holiday Special!
Every month you are invited to 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 Daleks, Dart Vader, The Borg, Zombies, Network Censors, Evil from other dimensions and He Who Should Not Be Named! The ladies 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!
April 2017 – Coen Brothers tribute

“All-encompassing in its nod to vaudeville, the show is high on craft. And while it carries history’s torch of old school stage entertainment, Hotsy Totsy slips in a message for our times, that “the geek shall inherit the earth.” – The Edge
