OTHER UPCOMING SHOWS
NEW SERIES! NEW VENUE!
As most of you may have already heard, our beloved home theatre, The Toronto Underground Cinema recently had to close its doors. This news was met with great sadness as we had always considered the Underground Cinema to be our second home. We created the Underground Peepshow not only because we loved burlesque, but we also wanted to support the cinema and give back to the amazing community it helped foster over the last few years. While we will miss the many quirks our old venue had to offer, we are also looking forward to the new opportunities ahead for The Underground Peepshow. We are extremely excited to announce that we have found a new home: The Metro Theatre (677 Bloor St West, Toronto).
Being huge film nerds, we have always adored the atmosphere of a classic rep cinema. Our tight friendship and strong professional relationship were created and cultivated on a stage in front of a silver screen, first at the Bloor Cinema where we performed in the Repo! The Genetic Opera and Rocky Horror Picture Show shadow casts, and then later at the Toronto Underground Cinema. We also believe that holding our shows at a rep cinema is one of the main aspects that makes our shows so special and unique, and we want to be able to share this environment with you, our audience. With so few rep cinemas left open in downtown Toronto, we feel incredibly fortunate to have discovered the Projection Booth Metro. With its interesting history and reputation, The Metro has often been viewed only with curious speculation. We've often wondered what the place was like inside, but most of us never dared to go in. However, with the new push to restore the theatre back to its former glory and bring back the classic films and interactive theatre experience, everyone can finally appreciate this hidden gem on Bloor Street West. The new management of the Metro share the same sentiments that we have for rep cinema, and we look forward to working with them to help nurture a new community. We hope that you will become a part of it!
In light of new beginnings, we are happy to present to you a series of four themed shows happening in Fall 2012-Spring 2013 called The Peepshow Rises. The series begins with our Tim Burton inspired burlesque show, The Nightmare Before Stripmas, which will be happening on Saturday, October 6, 2012 at the Projection Booth Metro. Our second show, Apocalust: Burlesque at the End of the World is happening on December 7 and 8, 2012, followed by our third show, Dungeons, Dragons & Damsels: A High Fantasy Striptease on March 8 and 9, 2013. Our fourth and final theme in the series happening on Friday, June 7 , 2013 is Tarantino Tease: Volume 1, a tribute to iconic cult film director, Quentin Tarantino. As always, part of our mandate at the Underground Peepshow is that we are an inclusive community and we welcome both new and seasoned burlesque performers to pitch an act for all of our shows. Please check back on our website for information onf how you can be involved.
Winter is coming, but don't you worry. The Underground Peepshow will will continue to warm your nerdy little hearts this season!
