'Showgirls! The Musical!' Bringing Raunch and Spandex to the Stage

By Elizabeth Barber | April 8, 2013 12:54pm

EAST VILLAGE — “Showgirls” just got even more raunchy — coming to the stage next week is “Showgirls! The Musical!,” a spoof take on the raunchy cult classic.

Produced by the same minds behind last year's "Saved by the Bell" musical, the new musical is a parody of the 1995 film “Showgirls," in which a gorgeous and savvy stripper, Nomi, played by "Saved by the Bell" star Elizabeth Berkley, climbs the dancing ranks to become a Las Vegas showgirl.

In the new version, according to the trailer, Nomi will do much the same, but in slightly more risque lingerie – think red and sparkly, with a side of spandex.

The new musical promises not only the “erotic dancing” of the original but also “questionable dancing,” according to a statement.

There will also be musical numbers like “Don't Lick that Pole, Girl” and “I’d Look Great in Versace” – as well as plenty of thrusting, according to the statement.

“Showgirls! The Musical!” will run at the Kraine Theatre at 85 E. Fourth St. from April 17 to May 4. All shows are at 8 p.m.

Tickets can be purchased in advance for $18 from ShowgirlsTheMusical.com and can also be bought at the door for $20.
