The Search for Sexy Boba Fett

He's the baddest dude in the galaxy. The most feared bounty hunter in the Outer Rim. When the Hutts need someone caught and brought before them, he's the man they call. His name? Boba Fett, one of the most legendary and iconic characters in the Star Wars Universe. So of course, it was only a matter of time before the geeky gals of Gorilla Tango Burlesque (GTB) decided that the guy who flew the Slave One with a Han Solo in Carbonite popsicle in its hold would join the cast of their newest show...as a woman.

Such is the case with the open casting call that has been put out for Gorilla Tango Theater's The Empire Brings Sexy Back: A Star Wars Burlesque. According to their press release they are looking for "female comic actresses of all shapes, sizes and colors" to perform in their new burlesque show that lets fans "experience the story from the Empire's point of view."

Now, after seeing A Nude Hope: A Star Wars Burlesque, I'm confident that the folks of GTT are going to put together another fun show that's faithful to the spirit of Star Wars.

Anyone interested in auditioning should send an e-mail to MsPixy@gorillatangotheater.com.

The performers of Gorilla Tango Burlesque will also be in attendance at Wizard World Chicago Comic Con, August 9-12, where they will have a photo booth where fans will be able to "take free photographs with your favorite scantily clad superhero or fantasy character!" They can also be found on the convention floor "with bright lights bouncing off of sexy C3P0s!"

During the convention the following Gorilla Tango Burlesque shows will be performing at either the Bucktown or Skokie venues:

HOOTER RANGERS: A SPICY MORPHIN' BURLESQUE - performing Fridays at 9pm (Bucktown Venue)

TEMPLE OF BOOBS: AN INDIANA JONES BURLESQUE - performing Fridays at 10:30pm (Bucktown Venue)
