C3PO with boobs is just sad.....
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 …
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).

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.
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).
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?
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.....
