You wouldn’t think that nerdy Star Wars and sultry burlesque would go well together but you’d be surprised. Actually, if you went to Le Femme Mystique’s sold-out Star Wars Burlesque last year at the Beachland Ballroom, you won’t be surprised when they do it again this year — and you’d better grab a ticket now and not wait to get one at the door.
At Star Wars Burlesque: The Tease Strikes Back, you’ll see a full lineup of performers who have constructed their acts around Star Wars characters. Headline Vita De Void from Florida, for instance, will be performing as Amidala and Darth Talon. You’ll see Columbus’ Dimples Diamond as Ray. And Cleveland’s burlesque queen and Le Femme Mystique founder Bella Sin, back on stage after giving birth less than two months ago, with be Darth Vader.
In addition, you’ll see special feature Noella Deville from Akron as Bobba Fett and Jabba the Hutt, and local girls Bee Awkward (Ewok), Vina Negrita (Han Solo), Miss Marguerite (Jyn Erso), Kinset Quake (C3PO), Sable Champagne (R2D2), Miss Hollt Grail & Cece Noir (BB8), Marly Teenie (Princess Leia) and Mill Lily Von Matterhorn (Poe Demeron). Witty comedian Ken Schneck, who really knows how to rev up a crowd, is the host.
Tickets are $15 in advance, $20 at the door, but as we mentioned, it’s best not to wait.
