Did you know the Home for Wayward Girls and Fallen was built on a magician's burial ground? Cherry Pitz and the good ladies of the Home have dealt with aliens, zombies, ghosts, demons, all while trying to raise funds to keep the Home in order (and, of course, for glitter and lingerie). This October a new spirit comes to visit Cherry... how do the dead really feel about all of this burlesque happened on top of their graves?
Hosted by Handsome Brad & Cherry Pitz.
Featuring: Cherry Pitz, Clara Coquette, Gemini Blitz, Mary Cyn, Matt Knife & Petite Renard with Erika Rodgers warming up the crowd.
Following on the footsteps of Hotsy Totsy Burlesque’s successful Disney, Harry Potter, The Big Lebowski, Mad Men, Doctor Who and Star Wars 1978 Holiday Special tribute shows, Cherry Pitz and Joe the Shark present a burlesque tribute to the iconic FX Network television series American Horror Story! Produced by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, AHS has had several seasons that have terrified and intrigued audiences - Murder House, Asylum, Coven & Freakshow, and premiering the night before Hotsy Totsy, Lady Gaga's HOTEL. AHS: Freakshow garnered a total of twenty Emmy Award nominations, the most for any season of the show. Hotsy Totsy Burlesque is 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.
Once a month you are invited to the basement of 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 as they’ve had to combat, zombies, gangsters, human-animal hybrids, televangelists and snake oil salesmen. The performers 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!”

It's a feeling of having stumbled into a bar outside of the space-time continuum, where the best bits of sexy 20th century aesthetics (early jazz, false eyelashes, garter belts) have been gathered together for some smart and sensual dancers to play with. - www.nytheatre.com
