Big Burlesque Presents: The award-winning Original Fat-Bottom Revue in “Big Big Love”
Feb. 20, 21, 27 & 28, 2004

Sometimes sweet, sometimes savory, but always sultry, the dancers of the Original Fat-Bottom Revue are back in fine, full form for an ALL-NEW feauture-length event! Due to popular demand, we have expanded our show to FOUR INCREDIBLE NIGHTS at the intimate Studio Theater of Theater Rhinoceros. If you’ve seen our show before, you already know that we incorporate old-school burlesque and new-school attitudes and many different forms of dance (from belly to ballet), and if you’re new to the Fat-Bottom Revue, you are in for a treat from the world’s only gender-inclusive, exclusively plus-size Burlesque ensemble. Added especially for this show is an erotica reading from the work of Hanne Blank, fat activist and author of many books including “Big Big Love”.

We will also be screening a documentary about the Padded Lillies, so come see them (and if you’re lucky, you might spot one in the audience…or onstage!) Looking forward to shaking and shimmying it for all of you in February at Theater Rhino!

Theatre Rhinoceros
8:30 pm
$15–$20, sliding scale
