PRETENÇIÓN: un cirque de burlesque, un burlesque de cirque
After a two-year hiatus, Pinchbottom returns with one of its most celebrated shows! See why The Village Voice and New York Magazine named Pinchbottom the "Best Burlesque" in NYC.
Pretençión is the place where Mystery sits at a table with Elegance, and Imagination orders a round of drinks before dinner. It is a world where those drinks are served by a pompous clown. Join Pinchbottom on a sensual quest for Pretençión, an imaginary yet sexy element that turns burlesque performers from "Jerkques" (ordinary people) into self-important "Cirques": infuriatingly magical, unendurably spellbinding artistes who peel away the mundane with every layer of clothing. Step into the world of Pretençión -- but be careful not to trip on the magic. Starring Angie Pontani, Broadway Brassy, Cheekie Lane, Dirty Martini, Jo "Boobs" Weldon, Jonny Porkpie, Scott Rayow, Tansy, Tigger!, Trixie Little & The Evil Hate Monkey, and stage kitten Bunny Buxom
"Those insouciant scamps take their themed burlesque into the lion's den of high-concept clown shows and stuff those haute-cirque's pretensions where the soleil don't shine." -Time Out New York
