The Empire Strips Back background
So how did Beattie end up creating a burlesque parody of Star Wars, full of dominatrix Darth Vaders and spinning Jedis? Interestingly, back in 2011, Beattie conceived an intimate show for Australia’s The Vanguard, with the hopes of merging the original sci-fi trilogy of the Star Wars saga and contemporary striptease humour. The response to the original production- initially called Star Wars Burlesque- was unprecedented, with the show being sold out in record time. Having toured Australia no less than 4 times, The Empire Strips Back is now ready to become an international success! Bearing in mind the show sold out its last run at breakneck speed, you should make sure you get in early for The Empire Strips Back tickets for this prolific comedy great! At StubHub, you can now both buy and sell The Empire Strips Back tickets, this way ensuring that all Star Wars fans can get a taste of the latest hit in theatre comedy.
