Fans of sci-fi, David Lynch & burlesque rejoice! The Pink Room is finally doing a tribute to Lynch’s biggest budget disaster starring Kyle MacLachlan, Patrick Stewart and Sting. This highly anticipated film was a critical and box-office failure but because of it’s spectacular visuals and Lynch’s following, it has turned into a cult classic. Lynch, who turned down the offer to direct Star Wars has replaced his credit with “Alan Smithee”, the official pseudonym for directors who are dissatisfied with their films and able to prove to the guild that they did not have creative control.
Whether you want to be a Bene Gesserit witch, a floating Harkonnen fat man, an Atreides training to ride the sandworm or Sting wearing a cod piece, The Pink Room will take you to the planet of Arrakis and teach you of the Weirding Way. Whether or not you are ready for it, the spice will flow! Just as Lynch played with an outrageous budget for this film, Pink Room producer, Francine “The Lucid Dream” is making this the most extravagent Pink Room show ever. The spectacular visuals of this burlesque show aims to match that of the film and surpass it in humor, cohesiveness and of course, sexiness!
The Pink Room Burlesque is a tribute to and satire of the works of David Lynch. Since the anniversary of Laura Palmer’s death in February of 2011, Francine and The Pink Room cast have covered everything from Twin Peaks, Fire Walk With Me, Blue Velvet, Wild At Heart, Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive, Eraserhead & Inland Empire.
