A Nude Hope Star Wars burlesque show was the perfect combination of hilarious and sexy. We loved it! Highly recommend. Staff at the desk were also great. It is a rather small theatre but that gave it a more personal experience that a group big or small can enjoy. Recommend going early to get a good seat!

After watching the first five seasons of Game of Thrones in two months, it was perfect timing for my girlfriend and me to find ourselves at this show. Granted, most of the references are for the first season. It's not your traditional burlesque, but the show is a lot of fun and a great parody of the TV show. It... More

The Gorilla Tango Theatre is a little hole in the wall venue. It is very tiny and the theatre is comprised of a few very tight rows of chairs. A very small selection of beer is available for purchase. The performance and costuming were not what I would consider the quality of a professional burlesque troupe. The costuming was obviously...

This was my first visit to a burlesque show and I was suitably impressed. When my husband and I arrived I was a little dismayed by the tiny size and grunge of the theatre but decided to hang in as I am a Star Trek fan and was intrigued by the premise of an all-female cast of the Star Trek... More

I visited here on the night they did StarWars: A Nude Hope. It was a riot. Hilariously cheesy and raunchy but some of the best entertainment I had in the windy city. It's in a hipster neighborhood so be on the lookout for PBR and cheap sunglasses. So much fun though.

Theater provided with exceptional source of entertainment. It's a small intimate setting perfect for a small crowd of friends. Provides clever outtakes of things like Indiana Jones or Star Wars in a burlesque setting. Highly recommend worth the visit!!!

What a fun place! Their Star Wars themed burlesque show was amazing. The ladies were very entertaining and scantily clad, while not taking themselves too seriously. The show was entertaining & hilarious, with interpolations of famous songs from the 70's. AMAZING can only partially describe the experience. Go there.

Having recently graduated with a degree in history, a friend urged me to come out to a little gem he had discovered. Apparently this establishment has occasional burlesque shows, and they have been developed with a nerdy theme. The particular show he took me to see was Indiana Jones themed (appropriate to celebrate my love of history) and while the... More

Just go, be ready to be amazed at a creative display of art. I went for a comedy show. Yes the production value was low but so was the cost of the ticket.
