After sold-out performances in the US last year, Sydney burlesque creation The Empire Strips Back is returning to Australia with scantily-clad stormtroopers and more than a few, ahem, lightsaber gags.
For those who haven’t yet witnessed the show, expect gussied up versions of Luke, Han, Leia, Chewy and droids in this heady reinterpretation of the Star Wars universe replete with striptease, comedy and cosplay.
Fri January 31 – Canberra Theatre Centre
