Star Wars Burlesque From The Devil's Playground
On Friday March 12, 2010, The Devil's Playground Burlesque Troupe put on an amazing show at The Music Box @ Fonda in Hollywood, California. Courtney Cruz's gals had the sold-out crowd in the palm of their hand the entire evening. The show was performed to some heart thumping beats... everything from electronica to the Star Wars score to Martha & the Vandellas' "Nowhere to Run" was spun by the DJ, and the girls spun just as many tassels!
The show featured a huge variety of performances and was developed as a full-blown stage show with props and sets designed by Carlos Flores. Matthew McCallum played a Han Solo-esque character who was the de-facto narrator for the evening. The girls donned costumes of almost every reconizable character in the original trilogy (as you'll see from the photo gallery below).
After the opening crawl (which streamed on the curtain) and a brief introduction piece by our narrator, the curtain rose and Darth Vader was revealed. She ignited her lightsaber, and the crowd went insane. The Imperial March blared and the fun began. Every girl brought something different to the show. Overall it was playful, sexy, zany, crazy and fun as hell! Courtney Cruz's appearance near the end of the show brought the audience to a fever pitch. The coup-de-grace was when she unleashed a blaster full of confetti into the air above the crowd!
After the show, the cast took a burlesque bow (backsides first) and then Courtney introduced all involved. The troupe then gave away several amazing gifts to audience members, including a cruise to the Caribbean for one lucky guy! Following that the party was on; the drinks were flowing and the girls were available for photos with the public. It turned out to be one cool evening... compliments of The Devil's Playground and a certain galaxy far, far away.
