The Empire Strips Back started in a galaxy far, far away (Australia). It was first performed in Sydney in 2011 and was an instant hit. As it’s toured across the world, word-of-mouth from a passionate fanbase has helped the show get better each year.
This sultry show may take place in the Star Wars universe, but don’t think it’s for fans only! The silly skits, bombastic stagecraft, and masterful dancing can be appreciated by all.
The wardrobe and props in The Empire Strips Back are what really make this production stand out. Whether it’s a speeder in a “sexy car wash” number or Leia’s metal bikini in the iconic Jabba the Hutt scene, everything has been lovingly created to look like it came straight out of the latest Star Wars blockbuster.
At every stop of its tour, The Empire Strips Back has been getting rave reviews. Broadway World praised the show for “Skillfully melding elements of traditional striptease with a knowledge and deep affection of the Star Wars franchise.”
Ariana Bindman of SFGate described the San Francisco show as “One of the most memorable and impressive live performances [she’d] ever seen.” Comedian Gabriel Iglesias even enjoyed himself at one of the LA performances.
The Empire Strips Back has arrived in San Diego and is now playing at the Alderaan Memorial Pop-Up Theatre (1944 Commercial St). The production will end on April 30 and tickets for the last shows are already going fast, so get yours soon before they’re gone!
