Pinchbottom Burlesque at the Beehive

Burlesque is still hot and you will get a chance to catch a show at The Beehive in the South End. On August 5, from 9pm to 1am, the Beehive will present “Pinchbottom Burlesque. Pinchbottom is where burlesque meets theater, buys it a drink, and takes it to bed.

Pinchbottom Burlesque is the name of a production company which produces themed & scripted burlesque shows in New York City. It is also the title under which its two creators, Nasty Canasta and Jonny Porkpie, perform as a duet. Each Pinchbottom show centers around a different theme, bringing together striptease and variety acts from top performers with contemporary narrative. It even has a plot and script!

It will feature Nasty Canasta, Jonny Porkpie and Clams Casino, winner of the “2008 Burlesque Hall of Fame Exotic World Pageant” for “Most Humorous” and “Most Innovative.” You also don’t want to miss Peekaboo Pointe of “This is Burlesque” and the World Famous Pontani Sisters. This is a rare opportunity to see New York’s award-winning Pinchbottom Burlesque in Nasty Canasta’s hometown of Boston!

Since she started performing, Pinchbottom’s producer Nasty Canasta has wanted to bring her unique brand of burlesque to Boston. Now, thanks to The Beehive she will have that chance, including a Red Sox tribute she first performed before the 2007 World Series.

There will be no cover charge and there will be a cash bar.
