EPIC WIN Burlesque presents "The Star Debate: Trek vs. Wars." This sexy symposium will settle the great nerd argument once and for all.
Two costumed nerds passionately argue the superiority of their favorite science fiction franchises, with sexy "evidence" provided by superstars of the NYC burlesque scene.
EPIC WIN Burlesque has been accepted into the 2011 NYC Fringe Festival. The New York International Fringe Festival (FringeNYC) is the largest multi-arts festival in North America, with more than 200 companies from all over the world performing for 16 days in more than 20 venues.
We are absolutely honored to be a part of this prestigious theater festival and the show that was accepted is, "The Star Debate: Trek vs. Wars."
The geeks of EW! will clash against one another in civil war to settle one of the most impassioned nerd arguments of our time: Which science fiction franchise is superior, Star Trek or Star Wars? Leading the arguments for Team Trek will be vaudevillian Nelson Lugo, with "evidence" provided by Trekkie hotties Lefty Lucy, Miss Mary Cyn, Fem Appeal and special guest Hazel Honeysuckle. Arguing on behalf of Star Wars will be nerd rapper Schaffer the Darklord and his team of sultry Siths BB Heart, Victoria Privates, Magdalena Fox, Nasty Canasta and special guest Rosey La Rouge. Since our hosts will be playing the parts of opposing counsel, our audience will play the part of jury. Indeed, the "winner" will be determined by audience vote.
As it turns out producing any kind of theater is expensive in New York but the NYC Fringe Festival especially so. There are all kinds of fees and theater costs and insurance to purchase and secure.
We have the show... we have the cast... we have an amazing production that ONLY had two nights back in Sept of last year. Only a very small slice of the nerd community got a chance to see this - this is a grievous oversight that we are attempting to fix. The NYC Fringe is giving us five performances and five opportunities for all of you to see the spectacle that is space boobs.
If you can help with a donation of money then you will have our sincere thanks... but on top of that you will also be listed in our program as a "Friend of EPIC WIN" AND get a crap-ton of nerd swag - just check the rewards to see the full list.
If you can't help with a donation of money then please forward this to everyone you know - the more people who know the better.
Thanks for reading, thanks for being a fan and...
May the force live long and prosper.
