The 1995 movie Showgirls, written by Joe Eszterhas and directed by Paul Verhoeven, followed on the heels of their mega-successful thriller Basic Instinct and promised to make a star out of ingenue Elizabeth Berkley as innocent wannabe dancer Nomi Malone. Instead, the film crashed at the box office and stalled Berkley’s career. Its DVD release spawned what so many epic flops do – it inspired Rocky Horror-esque midnight screenings. Now, the Onyx Theatre brings Showgirls the Musical to lascivious life on stage. This very funny and very adult parody features actual Vegas showgirls – and an audience splash zone to accommodate the notorious pool scene re-creation.
