Fans can’t get enough of The Empire Strips Back, and due to popular demand the show has extended its Denver run. Why’s this spaced-out striptease got everyone flocking to The Brighton to catch a performance? Here are five reasons to find out for yourself!
1. The Music
The music in The Empire Strips Back is always subject to change, but you can still expect it to cover genres from heavy metal to trip-hop. When we went they played music from System Of A Down, Portishead, Run-D.M.C., Bonnie Tyler, Gun N’ Roses, and even Tenacious D, just to name a few!
2. The Sets & Costumes
This isn’t the Stormtrooper armor we wore as kids for Halloween. All the costumes have been specially designed to be movie-quality, if a bit more revealing than the latest Disney blockbuster. And you can feel the amount of love and craftsmanship that’s gone into the sets and props, including tauntauns, Luke’s speeder, and a full-sized Jabba the Hutt!
3. The Reviews
Don’t just take our word for how impressive this production is. SFGate called it “One of the most memorable and impressive live performances [they’ve] ever seen.” LA Weekly said “The attention to detail [and] the enthusiasm and energy of the dancers is unparalleled in this galaxy or any other.” And the Reno Gazette Journal said “Star Wars fans, this is the show you’re looking for.”
4. The Merch
The Empire Strips Back offers stunningly designed t-shirts that any fan of the galaxy far, far away will enjoy. And they go even further, offering unique items like Wookierotica, a classy, Playboy-style magazine set in the Star Wars universe. Check it out here!
5. The Surprises
The last reason to see this show? We can’t tell you, because the unexpected surprises are truly jaw-dropping. There’s one number in particular that had us dying, and we won’t give it away here but let’s just say it involves the Death Star…
There’s plenty more reasons to see The Empire Strips Back, but you’ll see them for yourself at the show! So hurry and get your tickets to catch this one of a kind experience while it’s in Colorado.
