Rhinestone Gorilla Burlesque is New York's ragtag army of art school delinquents. The troupe--which specializes in narrative burlesque, pop culture and literary adaptations, lowbrow comedy, audience competitions, cheesy disco covers, and self-indulgent '90s nostalgia--are not your average showgirls; they're rhinestones in the rough, anti-glamour guerilla grrrls prone to attack and entice. The troupe--which created the celebrated Animaniacs burlesque musical, "Good Idea/Bad Idea"--has recently returned from a 15-city national tour.

Formerly known as Alpha Psi Ecdysia, Rhinestone Gorilla Burlesque was founded in 2008 as the nation's premier undergraduate burlesque troupe. While based on the campus of the State University of New York at New Paltz, Rhinestone Gorilla lived a double life as an educational institution and a professional producing entity. On the New Paltz campus, Rhinestone Gorilla dedicated itself to teaching burlesque history, the politics of neo-burlesque and the practice of burlesque performance; off-campus, Rhinestone Gorilla was the underage darling of the New York stripperformance art scene, getting naked on school nights at The Slipper Room, Rififi, Public Assembly, and Sugarland and in venues in LA, SF, Boston, and beyond. Though frequent subjects of controversy and police activity, Rhinestone Gorilla's students on the SUNY campus--who have inherited the name Alpha Psi Ecdysia--remain the only state-sponsored strippers in the nation.

"Wildly inventive, completely nuts, and charming through-and-through." -Flavorpill

"These cerebral ladies, cast in the Lena Dunham mold of young, smart, sexy, nerdy, nerdy-sexy women, show off their high brow cred and low brow spread  all in titillating, sparkly, see-through costumes." - Burlesque Beat

"Rhinestone Gorilla is the future of burlesque." -San Francisco Burlesque Review
