Shadowbox Live to Present BODY HEAT
After all the holiday fallout has settled and 2017 has been successfully ushered in, Shadowbox Live turns the lights down low, slips into something a little more comfortable, and gets ready to get it on with Body Heat, a sexy, new sketch comedy and rock 'n' roll show opening January 5, at the Brewery District theater, 503 South Front Street.
A mix of brand new characters and old favorites will be featured in original sketches that poke fun at America's favorite topic: SEX! And, rockin' music from house band BillWho? will be so hot that the snow on Front Street is sure to melt!
"Body Heat is our annual 'sex, love and relationship themed' show," explains David Whitehouse, Chief Video Editor and Metaperformer for Shadowbox Live. "It's a theme that really resonates with our audience because it's something we all have in common."
Jimmy Mak, Head Writer for Shadowbox Live agrees, "The topics of sex, love, and relationships are very broad and universal. We find ourselves writing sketches that range from the first date to the last, and everything in between!"
From the band stage, audiences will be treated to a diverse playlist:
· Just A Girl by No Doubt
· Addicted to Love by Robert Palmer
· 24K Magic by Bruno Mars
· I Get Off by Halestorm
· Hit Me Like A Man by The Pretty Reckless
· I Just Had Sex by Akon
· Sex Machine by James Brown
· Do You Wanna Touch Me by Joan Jett
· I Just Want to Make Love to You by Jeff Beck
· Strange Face by Tito and Tarantula
On the comedy stage, titillating sketches include:

"This is the fourth year they have partnered with us and we are thrilled that they are continuing their support," comments Julie Klein, Marketing Director for Shadowbox Live.
