The plot of Revival Burlesque's new show is complicated. It's like Hitchcock, but Grace Kelly is dead and there is more nudity.

When the heir to the Yummy Pussy cat toy company fortune is kidnapped, her stepmother, Mrs. La Prix, hires a Private Jane to solve the mystery. One P.I. Martel and her boy Friday go undercover and infiltrate the secret nightclub, "The Fur Pile".

Explore the seedy underbelly of the world of ..."furries"?!?

Revival sets themselves apart from the (huge!) crowd of burlesque performances in Philly often by presenting what they like to call, "burlesque plays". That is, they have a beginning, middle, and end. "Like a play. But with boobs," says director, Annie A-Bomb.

Revival Burlesque, returns to one of their favorite venues The Walking Fish Theatre, Fishtown's black box bastion of live performance hope. The Walking Fish Theatre is located at 2509 Frankford Avenue, Phila, PA 19125.
