“Be prepared for some seriously sultry Stormtroopers, a dangerously enticing Boba Fett, some tantalizing Twi’leks, a delightfully luke-warm Taun Taun, a lady-like Skywalker, the Droids you are looking for, and much, much more! Get your tickets to The Empire Strips Back in Los Angeles!

The hit ‘Star Wars’ burlesque parody, The Empire Strips Back, is finally open again! Playing in Los Angeles through January, this previously sold-out experience drops classic sci-fi characters into the world of burlesque. Ready to enter your dark side?

If you’re unable to make it Los Angeles this month, the show is moving to San Diego, at the Alderaan Memorial Theatre – An Extraordinary Pop-Up Venue, for the months of February and March.

These are definitely not the droids you’re used to looking for. But hey, if you’re in L.A or San Diego, this could very well ‘be the way’.
