From barely legal to legally bare, Rhinestone Gorilla Burlesque is New York's ragtag team of art school rejects. Heralded as "dangerous-minded and infectious" and "the future of burlesque" (The San Francisco Burlesque Review), The Rhinestone Gorillas are not your average showgirls; they're rhinestones in the rough, anti-glamour guerilla grrrls prone to attack and entice. 

Formerly known as ALPHA PSI ECDYSIA, Rhinestone Gorilla Burlesque was founded in 2008 as the nation's premier undergraduate burlesque troupe. While based on the campus of the State University of New York at New Paltz, RGB lived a double life as an educational institution and a professional producing entity. On the New Paltz campus, RGB dedicated itself to teaching burlesque history, the politics of neo-burlesque and the practice of burlesque performance; off-campus, RGB was the underage darling of the New York stripperformance art scene, getting naked on school nights at The Slipper Room, Rififi, Public Assembly, and Sugarland and in venues in LA, SF, Boston, and beyond. Though frequent subjects of controversy and police activity, the students of RGB remain the only state-sponsored strippers in the nation.

RHINESTONE GORILLA BURLESQUE performs at The Triad Theatre, 158 W. 72nd St., the second Sunday of every month. Tickets are $10 (with a two drink minimum).
