The scene: Hotsy Totsy Burlesque Does Mad Men at R Bar
Mad Men has captured our fancy with its blend of strong characters, nostalgia and garter-belted sex appeal—not to mention one very curvy redhead. If you think those qualities sound pretty familiar, you’re right. It’s what we love about burlesque, too, a point not lost on the folks at Hotsy Totsy. Big fans of the show when the they’re offstage, yjrtroupe members blended their passion for Mad Men with some in-jokes—and Cherry Pitz’s trademark pink wig—to create an evening that embraced devotees and novices alike. Backstage, the crew shared some opinions on Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce’s cult appeal, and its influence on their peel.
