The sassy performers of Gotham Vixens treat viewers to a provocative striptease, all while wearing progressively less of the iconic costumes of Batman characters. Each burlesque dancer transforms into a different villain: Drea Dillinger, Tito Bonito, and Dolly Danger might brandish the question-marked cane of The Riddler, the pointed ears of Catwoman, or the ornithology degree of The Penguin. But the audience need not fear, for whenever such dastardly minds collude, Batgirl is undoubtedly soon to appear. The Caped Crusader himself and his trusty butler, Alfred Pennyworth, host the evening, and attendees are welcome to join in on the cheeky fun by entering the costume contest.
Yadi Presents melds traditional burlesque with contemporary source material. Since the company's inception, performers with names like Meowberry Deathly, Lady Josephine, and Dolly Danger have conjured titillating, vaudevillian versions of Night of the Living Dead and Grease, and have even taken on the songs of Johnny Cash. Over the course of a single show, cast members shimmy out of their clothes, shake off their autumn leaves, play characters of opposite genders, and pay tribute to pop culture with equal amounts of kitsch and artistry.
