Stormtroopers in fishnets, steamy Sith, and jaw-dropping Jedi will strut their stuff when The Empire Strips Back comes to Portland! Starting November 1, the Alberta Abbey (126 NE Alberta St) will be home to one of the wildest shows in the galaxy.
With elaborate sets and costumes you’ll recognize from films like A New Hope, Return of the Jedi, and The Empire Strikes Back, The Empire Strips Back is the perfect show for any Star Wars fan. You’ll see classic characters such as Princess Leia, as well as new takes on familiar faces like lady versions of Darth Vader, Boba Fett, and C-3PO!
The outrageous show is a blast for sci-fi fans, but you don’t have to be a Star Wars fan to enjoy The Empire Strips Back. With talented dancers, steamy routines, a killer music playlist, and some hilarious comedy skits, there’s something for everyone.
From heavy-metal head-banging to smooth, sensual dancing, every new routine is wildly original. With plenty of surprises we won’t spoil here, The Empire Strips Back keeps audiences guessing what’s going to happen next!
The Empire Strips Back recently stopped in Los Angeles, and LA Weekly raved: “The attention to detail in the costuming is astounding, the enthusiasm and energy of the dancers unparalleled in this galaxy or any other.”
The Empire Strips Back comes to Portland’s Alberta Abbey (126 NE Alberta St) on November 1. Please be advised the show is 18+, so the padawans will have to stay at home.
