back to article Saucy Star Wars strip show - sorry, burlesque - to tour Down Under

Disney's acquisition of all things Star Wars has some fans in a lather at the prospect of new films set in the Lucasverse. Here at Vulture South, The Reg's Australian outpost, some are in a lather for an entirely different reason, namely the return of the revue Star Wars Burlesque: The Empire Strips Back. The show's creator …

Re: Sad

May I ask Why? The original artwork for New Hope had a very feminine C3PO. So nothing particularly offensive about that.

Otherwise, the dancing (both in terms of choreography and execution) is pretty lousy. It is a burlesque all right - but a burlesque from the worst days of this genre when adding a few t*ts and some stripping was supposed to make anything funny. Definitely not burlesque at this level: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BRTmvjXs1i0 (by the way, Google sticks MSFT sufrace advert to this video at least for me which is hilarious in itself).

Re: Sad

I have to disagree. This is striptease without the stripping, and a pretty pathetic attempt at teasing as well. Nothing but a bit of writhing around to less than mediocre soundtrack and lightshow. Burlesque, at least, has an element of art and entertainment (remember, burlesque also featured stand-up comedy and other non-stripping acts).

Helped it by making it more tolerable - yes. IMHO it would taken a whole mountain of t*ts to do so, but ... yes... it is possible... Jar Jar Binks head appearing from under a mountain of t*ts and... Not particularly appetizing but probably more watchable. Once...

Making it funnier however - not so much. Even good Burlesque is not particularly funny (unless you are seriously hammered). Just watch Cabaret for a good example.

Yeah, about the only memorable "kick-off"

Never before have I seen the day-long flight to Oz from here as a good thing but now it seems like a cordon sanitaire

Hmmm. Now I think of it.

Yes, they should have got some beefcake to play 'Prince Liam' amongst all the women.

That would be parody!

A travesty

That Wookieerotica magazine doesn't have any wookies in it. False advertising? (I'm glad I saw it via El Reg instead of ordering a copy in good faith.)

Have to agree with one of the posters above it's a fairly sub-standard burlesque show..

Is nothing sacred?

Think of the children, etc, etc. Of course, the more jaded might wonder if Carrie Fisher's outing in the gold bikini wasn't an effort to sex-up the franchise.

Restraining Order

A pound to a pinch of shit that Disney will slap a restraining order on this. Looking at it, they probably should, just as a service to taste.

Darth vader with that body in skin tight PVC outfit, can't see a problem personally.

Oh so many

C3PO with boobs? Logical progression if Anakin Skywalker had kept working on C3PO until his teens.

There's a "Han shot first" joke in there somewhere.

These are the droids I'm looking for!

Sorely tempted to get my other half a gold bikini for Christmas. If she finds out it's from Star Wars though I may not survive the winter...

Also, el reg posts a saucy Star Wars vid to make Monday a little more bearable and you lot complain that it isn't cannon? Who are you people and what have you done with the usual commentards?

Maybe, a group that has decent dancing skills would be interested to take up the concept. Either the editing on the preview was crap or they just didn't have anything to work with.

This show was brilliant

I saw the show on May the 4th 2012 (which was awesome), so am very happy it will be returning.

The Batman Follies show has also already toured , but the Star Wars show was significantly better

.

And as cliched as it is, the Slave Leia performance was spectacular....For the record, that woman writhes like a snake on stage, and has the most amazing...err...eyes.....

Cheers!
