I went for a stroll yesterday, to soak up some sun after work and came past the Palais Theater in St Kilda, when an advertisement for an event caught my attention: The Empire Strips Back: Star Wars Burlesque Parody!
What sounds like a bad name for some movies you have to declare at customs at your arrival in Australia is a well known and famous Burlesque show touring Australia at the moment.
Finally returning to Melbourne after 2 years, THE EMPIRE STRIPS BACK: A Star Wars Burlesque Parody lands at The Palais Theatre stage! After dozens of sold out shows in Sydney, and a handful of Theatre shows around the country, the all brand-new show returns!
The Empire Strips Back is a show designed to indulge you in a sci-fi fantasy of intergalactic proportions – George Lucas could never dream that his characters could be used in such a manner, guaranteed to get some hearts racing with The Force.
If you still are not sure, what the show is about, have look at this video that features some elements of the THE EMPIRE STRIPS BACK: A Star Wars Burlesque Parody show:
We sure will be there. Perfect venue, interesting show, what more could you ask for!
