This hit Star Wars parody features the franchise’s most beloved characters dropped into the world of burlesque, comedy, and striptease. Following sold-out shows and rave reviews, The Empires Strips Back will end its SF run at the historic Great Star Theater on October 2. Here are 5 reasons not to miss out on this incredible show.
Trust us, these are the droids you’re looking for. A few of your favorite droids take to the stage with memorable performances, but C-3PO takes their “human-cyborg relations” role to the next level. Grab your tickets here.
2. Lando Calrissian
Your host for the evening is funny, suave, and always has a few tricks up his sleeve. He might not have the keys to the Millennium Falcon, but he’s the perfect captain for this amazing night of performances. Don’t miss your chance to see the show.
3. Jabba and Leia
The amazing chemistry between Jabba and Leia is on full display. What Jabba lacks in dance moves, he makes up for in his vocal range. Jabba and Leia lay it all on the line in an act that you have to see to believe. Catch this incredible performance here.
4. Han and Chewie
The galaxy’s most dynamic duo bring their swagger, humor, and outlandish dance moves to the stage in a performance that will bring the house down. Not even carbonite can slow Han down. Watch this duo break it down.
Equally Beautiful and deadly, these stormtroopers launch a coordinated strike that will certainly command your attention. If they make you nervous, just hope that their boss doesn’t make an appearance. Grab tickets while you still can.
In addition to these amazing performances, be prepared for a dangerously seductive Boba Fett, some tantalizing Twi’leks, a delightfully luke-warm Tauntaun, and much, much more.
The Empire Strips Back takes place at 8pm on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays; 8pm and 10:30pm on Fridays; 7pm and 9:30pm on Saturdays; and 7pm on Sundays.
