School’s out for summer and you are cordially invited to annual Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry Teacher’s Night Out event. Every year the faculty at Hogwarts throws a private party where we can let loose and go wild - without any students around! This year with the help of Hagrid, who has a summer job working security for the Slipper Room in New York, we have chosen to have our party in conjunction with Hotsy Totsy Burlesque. The night includes special guests such as Professor Trelawney -- who promises to show you more than what’s in her crystal ball -- plus Mad Eye Moody, Severus Snape and Dumbledore have all RSVP’d from beyond the grave to jump on stage and shake a tail feather! So hold onto your hippogriffs! Again, there will be no students allowed!

PS: Hi Harry and Happy Birthday, now that you’re out of school, I think its okay for you to come and join us on this very adult thing we do every year. Welcome to manhood! - Your pal, Hagrid

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!”

7pm doors, 8pm show. $10. Advanced tickets will be available at www.slipperroom.com. They guarantee you get in, but if you want a physical seat, show up early!

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
