THE DOCTOR is back! It’s Cherry's birthday and the Doctor always visits on her birthday, he hasn't missed one of them in over 90 years! What adventure is it this time? Is it a Cyber Man? The Vashta Narada – perhaps a Nude Oode? Maybe this time nothing will go wrong…maybe this time he will be able to say with confidence “No one dies today.” Or maybe the Doctor is ready to hit the big time, after all in the trailer for the upcoming series he does say "Every time I think it couldn't get any more extraordinary, it surprises me, It's impossible, I hate it, it's evil, it's astonishing. I want to kiss it to death."

Hosted by Handsome Brad
Featuring performances by Cherry Pitz, Delirium Tremens, Lucky Charming, Mary Cyn, Matt Knife and Miranda Raven.
With Apathy Angel shaking it for your gogo viewing pleasure and Raina Bow keeping everything neat and tidy.

Following on the footsteps of Hotsy Totsy Burlesque’s successful 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 BBC television series Doctor Who! 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 & glitter. Sadly, the shows have had their technical difficulties 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!”

Upcoming Shows:

October 8th – American Horror Story tribute show

November 12th – James Bond tribute show

December 10th -- Star Wars Tribute show

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
