Jonald jude was hypnotized. Dance patters loomed across his eyes and caught his artistic mind when proposed to Direct a burlesque show. “El Mari Chi Chi: A Robert Rodriquez Burlesque” was where it began and now the Jude wants to jump back in again. But what’s more gritty than Desperado? What has a cult following? What is a flick w/memorable quotes and/or characters and/or impacted a moment of time?
“The first rule of Fight Club is __________” – if you can finish that line, then you know why a burlesque version must be made!
With such dark plays of body movements to take advantage of, twisted visuals of multiple personalities, and sarcastic humor to layer over dialogue – the script is already in motion. But wait, there’s a new troupe calling to bring this idea into fruition. Ladies and gents, we introduce Plan 9 Burlesque. From the mouth of madams:
“Plan 9: When all plans fail, enact Plan 9. Plan 9 burlesque is the creation of 5 members of the Chicago Burlesque Community. Wanting to put their own stamp on Nerdlesque, these final five set out to create a group based on talent, drive, dedication, and equality. Outer Space is the limit for this new group. Monthly cabarets are in store, each with a different nerdy theme. Keep an eye out for their first fundraiser event scheduled for early September.”
Or further yet, let’s let the OC Dweeb Podcast introduce them. Here are founding members Stella Cheeks and Marie Curieosity on the nerd show.
