If you're looking for a family-friendly outing in a galaxy far, far away, uh, these are not the droids you're looking for.
The Riverside Theater today announced that it will host "The Empire Strips Back: A Burlesque Parody" on Saturday, April 13 – and it's exactly what it sounds like, blending striptease, song, dance and comedy with the iconic characters of "Star Wars." So there's now a "dangerously seductive Boba Fett," "seriously sexy Stormtroopers" and whatever the heck a "delightfully lukewarm Taun Taun" is. Well, that just won't help keep Luke Skywalker safe from the harsh Hoth weather conditions at all!
Tickets for "The Empire Strips Back" will go on sale Friday, Jan. 18 at 10 a.m. For more information on the show, visit The Pabst Theater's website – and prepare to tell the villainous Moffs, "I find your lack of faith – and clothes – disturbing."
As much as it is a gigantic cliché to say that one has always had a passion for film, Matt Mueller has always had a passion for film. Whether it was bringing in the latest movie reviews for his first grade show-and-tell or writing film reviews for the St. Norbert College Times as a high school student, Matt is way too obsessed with movies for his own good.
When he's not writing about the latest blockbuster or talking much too glowingly about "Piranha 3D," Matt can probably be found watching literally any sport (minus cricket) or working at - get this - a local movie theater. Or watching a movie. Yeah, he's probably watching a movie.
