n the far-off reaches of the county of Kings, where the subway ends and the sea begins, lies Coney Island: a sunset kingdom where the freaks are accepted, the children laugh, and summer lives forever. Join Rhinestone Gorilla Burlesque as we stroll down the boardwalk of memory lane. We’ll send ya a postcard.

Postcards from Coney Island is a semi-scripted burlesque musical inspired by Neil Simon, Coney itself, and that time they went to Disneyland on Full House.

Rhinestone Gorilla Burlesque is New York’s ragtag army of art school delinquents. The troupe–which specializes in narrative burlesque, pop culture and literary adaptations, lowbrow comedy, audience game shows, cheesy disco covers, and self-indulgent ’90s nostalgia–are not your average showgirls; they’re rhinestones in the rough, anti-glamour guerilla grrrls prone to attack and entice.
