Gorilla Tango’s “The Rack of Khan: A Star Trek Burlesque”
For fans that are excited about the recent news that writer Roberto Orci will direct the third installment of the revamped franchise (filling the seat vacated by J.J. Abrams who left to direct the new Star Wars series), there’s no need to wait until the 50th Anniversary in 2016 to enjoy the Final Frontier.
“The Rack of Khan: A Star Trek Burlesque” performs on Fridays at 9pm, all summer long, at Gorilla Tango Bucktown (1919 N. Milwaukee Avenue, Chicago IL 60647). And as an extra bonus, summer pricing has gone into effect: tickets are now $25 each. 18 and over only. Tickets can be purchased at www.gorillatango.com/rack or via phone 773-598-4549. Special group and party packages available.
Khan’s Genesis Device has transformed our Federation heroes Captain James T. Kirk, Mr. Spock and the entire Enterprise crew from their manly selves into smart, sexy women! How can they defeat Khan–and her Rack–and reverse the effects? What will it take to turn back the clock to their original manly selves? Of course! They’ll have to go forward to the “Next Generation” and enlist the help of the future of the Federation, Captain Picard, Worf and Data. Red shirts will be lost along the way–with other uniform pieces. You can discover why “Resistance is Futile” with this newest production of Gorilla Tango Burlesque.

Quotes About Shows:
“CHICAGO READER PICK! “More suggestive than raunchy and as concerned with laughs and novelty as with titallation…” The Chicago Reader
“For a production that rests somewhere between a comedy routine, a burlesque show, a disco revival, and a sci-fi film, ‘A Nude Hope’ is as unique as it is enjoyable.” The Chicagoist
“If you want to laugh and be thoroughly entertained on your burlesque night out, then you should definitely check out the Gorilla Tango Theatre.” 2 Girls and a Weekend
“The script is great and the girls are hilarious, delivering campy slapstick with than a little Carol Burnett and even more booby.” Chicago Nerd Social Club
“When the gorgeous, sexy, and funny GTT girls take the stage in their racy costumes and play their own tribute to these classic movies and games of nerd culture, they win over the entire audience, both men and women… Each performer can be applauded for both their erotic dance and their sharp sense of comic timing. It is so appropriate that if burlesque is to be moved into the sketch comedy realm, it might as well take place here in Chicago.” Wicker Park Pipeline
“You are going to see a hilarious parody centered around a geek theme that is near and dear to your heart. Yes, there are boobs. And they are great. But it is a show, and it’s a show you’re going to love.” J. Fourier (audience member)
