Following its return this summer after a two-year absence, Pinchbottom hits the stage again in the fall with a revival of their unauthorized James Bond parody You Only Pinch Twice. The show debuts the weekend of the UK release of the new official Bond movie, Skyfall (October 26-28), giving American fans "something with which to whet their appetite while waiting for the film to make its way to our shores." Pinchbottom has presented the show in conjunction with the release of every Bond movie since 2006.
"We considered changing the name of the show in celebration of the new movie Skyfall," said Porkpie. "But we couldn't decide between 'Pantfall,' 'Dressfall,' or 'Brafall' - until we realized that those are all pretty stupid names."
Pinchbottom Burlesque returns with You Only Pinch Twice, October 25, 26, & 27 at 8pm at The Kraine Theater (85 East 4th Street between 2nd Avenue and Bowery). Tickets ($25, $20 students & seniors) are available online at www.horseTRADE.info or by calling Smarttix at 212-868-4444.
PINCHBOTTOM BURLESQUE Pinchbottom is where burlesque meets theater, buys it a drink, and takes it to bed. Each Pinchbottom show centers around a different theme, integrating striptease into a scripted narrative much in the way that a musical integrates songs. Created by Jonny Porkpie and Nasty Canasta in 2004, Pinchbottom is now produced by Porkpie.
