Pinchbottom’s Pretençión

Cirque productions tend to give circus traditions a decidedly sophisticated, European gloss, forgoing the lions and chimps for nebulous characters twisting and leaping through a mystical journey. For burlesque theater troupe Pinchbottom, it’s ideal stuff for their brand of sexy parody. A studiously ordinary leading man wanders through a world stocked with outrageous dames such as Broadway Brassy, Dirty Martini and Julie Atlas Muz as he seeks the mysterious substance that will turn them from stripteasers and comedians into sensual, cirque-style artistes. A pompous but traumatized clown and an insistently French stripper are among the cast’s other creations.

In production on and off since 2008, the show has become one of Pinchbottom’s signature works. A 2009 review in Burlesque Magazine called it “joyously silly and self-mocking,” filled with “slick, perfectly crafted individual performances.”
