HARVEY FINKLESTEIN'S SOCK PUPPET SHOWGIRLS
"Don't miss this underground hit from Chicago, which has enough raunchy puppeteering to make the creators of "Avenue Q" avert their eyes." -- The New York Times
Lots of rude fun! Chicago Tribune
"You'll never look at your socksor The Muppetsthe same way again." -- New York Magazine
Chicago's acclaimed Harvey Finklestein Productions LLC in association with C.A.F.E. is please to present the west coast premier of its cult favorite HARVEY FINKLESTEINS SOCK PUPPET SHOWGIRLS. The new company of puppeteers made up of local actors launches with this open-ended engagement beginning September 28, 2007 at CAFE. This puppet show is ADULTS ONLY.
HARVEY FINKLESTEIN'S SOCK PUPPET SHOWGIRLS is a truly unique and wholly unauthorized parody of the Joe Eszterhas film Showgirls -- as performed by sock puppets. The play, like the beloved film, follow an ambitious young drifter as she navigates her way through that world of power, topless dancing, seduction, vulgarity, gambling and sex that we call Las Vegas. If you haven't seen sock puppets pole dance, you haven't experienced the true power of the theater.
Harvey Finklestein Productions premiered its Sock Puppet Showgirls in 2002. It played for over nine months and was hailed by Chicago critics as: "a great moment in Chicago theatre" (Windy City Times), "hilariously tasteless" (Chicago Tribune), and "a real sock-it-to-'em production!" (Chicago Sun Times). The New York premiere at The Cherry Lane Theatre as part of the 2004 New York International Fringe Festival became one of the hottest tickets of the festival. There have been two successful limited engagement runs at Ace of Clubs in New York, one during the fall of 2005 and one during the summer of 2006.
