Nothing brings bears together like B-rated films and Broadway!

Join us at the SF Eagle on Tuesday, July 16, as The Boys of Bearlesque present:

SHOWBEARS!
A body-positive mashup of the hit camp classic and showtunes

How far would you go for fame? What would you do for fortune? And what did you do for love?

From the creators of “Wizard of Poz:” the last time they took you to the edge…..this time they’re taking you all the way. When a cub with a troubled past sets his eyes on New York’s biggest stages, nothing will stand in his way as he shoots for that final bow. From auditions to casting couches, he’s out to prove that he’s a dancer….and a dancer dances. But what happens when an established Broadway Bear stands in his way? Will they become friends, enemies, or Bosom Buddies? As our cub climbs to be a top, he makes some friends, takes some lovers, burns some bridges, and learns some lessons. Surrounded by a sea of scantily clad chorus boys, this production promises to leave you thirsty for the backstage champagne room. Remember, boys, leave your inhibitions…….outside.

The critics are raving!
“I fell down the stairs……from laughter.” -Ben d’Over Brantley
“They took my time, they cashed my check, they gave me what I wanted to see.” –Christopher Onhiswood
“I’ll come again.” —Broadway.org
“I think I walked into a leather bar that was also producing a lip sync musical? Weird. But cool. ” –Some Guy

The Boys of Bearlesque are a body positive dance company founded by International Mr. Bear 2010 JD Welch. Following a two-year residency at the historic Stonewall Inn, the company moved west and has been entertaining crowds on the west coast for the last 6+ years. They are now celebrating a new artist residency at the SF Eagle! Performances blur the lines of burlesque, cabaret, drag, and theater. Expect to see boys of all sizes baring it all on stage using different styles – from dance to lip sync to comedy.
