You may have thrown rice at Tony N' Tina's Wedding. You may have wiped your eyes dry and then enjoyed a bagel and smoked fish at Grandma Sylvia's Funeral. And, if you missed it in LA, you have a chance to get down and dirty with David and Todd, who are celebrating their 18th "wedding" anniversary and the art of male erotic dance at the Cat Club, aka SF’s Rococco Showplace, beginning May 8 for an open ended “run.”
STRIP! Bare-ly Legal, written and directed by Steven J. McCarthy, is an interactive comedy which originated in Los Angeles as a vehicle to benefit Aunt Bee's Laundry and Housekeeping service for HIV/AIDS patients. The event includes complementary faux champagne and anniversary cake in honor of David and Todd's 18th year of wedded bliss. The parties are celebrated Thursday nights at 8 PM, twice on Friday and Saturday nights at 7 and 10 PM, and at 7 PM on Sundays.
STRIP! encourages audience members to let their hair down, live out their fantasies as well as tip the team of erotic male dancers, led by choreographer Euri.
Famed L.A. personality Madame Dish, aka Steven J. McCarthy, stars as the seductively dangerous Ms. Kitty, Proprietress and Mistress of Ceremonies of the Cat Club. Madame Dish hosts a weekly Los Angeles cook-n-chat cable television show "Dish," the show that says "Cooking is not the only thing that goes on in the kitchen."
Dish/McCarthy also originated the role of 'Vlad Helsenrott' in the original L.A. company of Grandma Sylvia's Funeral. The show also features porn star Kevin Kramer as “Golden Boy.” For information and reservations for STRIP! Bare-ly Legal, call (415) 392-4400, or refer to the Rococco Showplace regional listing on Playbill On-Line.
