With Captain America: Civil War, the latest entry in Marvel's cinematic universe, on the big screen now, Hotsy Totsy Burlesque found it fitting to make Marvel and superheroes the theme for their monthly show at The Slipper Room The 90 minute NYC event on 5/12 was hosted by Handsome Brad (as Iron Man) and Dan Gottlieb (as Captain America) with performances by Apathy Angel, Bimini Cricket, Dolly Dagger, Gogo Harder, Gogo Incognito, Minnie D'Moocha, Puss N Boots and Saraphina Cosplay. There was go-go dancing, comic-steeped nerdlesque performances, the whirling acrobatics of Nightcrawler, Captain America on the hunt for Red Skull, Iron Man fraternizing with Black Widow, and a birthday celebration for Red Skull himself (Hotsy Totsy co-producer Joe the Shark).

Catch superheroes and villians at The Cutting Room again on June 10th for the Team Zombie Leader Fundraiser: Superhero Burlesque for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Details and tickets HERE.
