You like zombies? Check.
You like boobies? Check.
You like the show The Walking Dead? Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeckarooney!
Then get your undead butts down to the Gorilla Tango Theatre for their latest offering Boobs of the Dead: A Walking Dead Burlesque.
Count and I had the extreme pleasure of attending the opening night performance and it was a doozy.
In a southern town, The Sheriff (Alexis Rex) awakens to find that a virus has taken over the world, and that virus turns the dead into sexy burlesque zombies. The more decayed they become...the sparklier and sexier the outfits get, because as we all know zombies LOVE sparkly things! Well even though sexiness is most welcome, we cannot have zombies taking over the world can we? Our Sheriff to the rescue, gets a sexy horse and rides out into the sunset to search for other survivors...
The Gorilla Tango Burlesque gals have a great talent of combining sexy AND funny and this parody of The Walking Dead is no exception. The interaction between the Burlesque Zombies and the cast including Southern Guy (Slightly Spitfire, whose DEAD-on version of Daryl Dixon was excellent), Wife Lady, Best Friend and Old Dude was hysterical. Interludes with The Doctor enhanced the performance, making the audience feel as if they were a part of the show.
Choreography was amazing, and as Count and I were actually seated next to the choreographer, we knew who to thank ;). Anyway, the girls never missed a beat and the dance number at the end was a complete surprise. You must attend a show to find out cause I won't reveal what happens here!
We both left the show wanting more and to definitely see it again. Count Gregula and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Boobs of the Dead.
