Plan 9 Burlesque
When picking out a name for their burlesque company, most people shy away from one that invokes one of the worst movies ever made. For Plan 9 Burlesque, however, this subtle wink of a moniker conveys both its off-kilter attitude and its source material. During shows that are equal parts titillation and fandom, performers may slip out of an X-Men costume or perform non-canon story lines from Firefly. Other performances break into such topics as American history and literature, with titles such as From Printing Press to Undressed and Brave New World, or A Farewell to Clothes. Breaking up the collar-dampening numbers are stand-up routines, musical performances, magic tricks, and calculated intermissions that give people a chance to release steam from their ears.
