Handsome Brad and Cherry Pitz
R Bar, Lower East Side Tuesday February 19 2013 20:00

Cherry Pitz and Joe the Shark return with their night of scripted burlesque (subtitled "The Home for Wayward Girls and Fallen Women"), held monthly on the Bowery. This one takes on that sexed-up E.L. James romance novel (what took them so long?)—and as usual, the show hightlights a murderers' row of talent, with Apathy Angel, Corvette Le Face, Minnie d’Moocha, Lucky Charming, Mary Cyn and Pitz herself all onstage. Amanda Whip is your stage kitten; Handsome Brad (as Mr. Grey) is the night's host. Go to hotsytotsyburlesque.com for more info.
