Don Draper comes to The Home For Wayward Girls and Fallen Women, bringing with him Betty, Megan, Joan, Roger and the rest of the tawdry gang of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce. Will Don be able to stay faithful to Megan or will he drown in the sea of sexy burlesque ladies? Will Megan grace the stage with a rendition of Bijou, Bijou? Will Betty lose the weight or decide that bigger is better? Will Sally be shocked and perplexed… again? Will that creepy kid steal all our panties? And what about Cherry Pitz? Will she be corrupted by all the dirty, dirty sex?
Cherry Pitz and Joe the Shark, two of New York’s premiere names in modern burlesque, proudly present Hotsy Totsy Burlesque! Combining Burlesque and Theater, Hotsy Totsy 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 showcasing some of the best burlesque talent this city has to offer.
Every third Tuesday of the 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 they have had to combat gangsters, human-animal hybrids, intergalactic space travelers, zombies, televangelists, snake oil salesmen and Sarah Palin. The girls feel certain that 2012 will be a much smoother year, but even if it isn’t, they promise you beautiful, clothing-averse women, lots of laughs, spinning tassels, and flying underpants.
