THE PINCH BROTHERS in "The Bawdy House"
When THE PINCH BROTHERS (also sisters) are hired to save an ailing theater, they do so by converting it into a BAWDY HOUSE, complete with ribald comedy, risqué magic, and of course, burlesque, burlesque, burlesque! But on opening night, everything goes wrong -- buttons keep popping, pants keep dropping, and the schtick keeps getting schtickier. Can Nasto (NASTY CANASTA), Porko (JONNY PORKPIE), Tiggo (Tigger!) and their siblings get through the show with their clothes intact? Nope.
"A Marx Brothers send-up, loosely following a storyline about saving an ailing theatre by turning it into a bawdy-house. Along the way came risqué magic tricks, a peek-a-boo performance by a tattooed lady, many a cheeky flash from male and female performers alike, the odd nostalgic burlesque routine, and the hint of a lesbian sub-plot. It was daring, funny, imaginative and titillating to all tastes - and, at $15 a ticket, about as good entertainment value as you can get in New York City
