Gorilla Tango: Back to the Future Burlesque


Chicago, IL (September 2016): Marty McFly is your average teenager growing up in 1985. He deals with the same things every young person does, like school, bullies, budding sexuality, and being sent back in time. When an experiment created by Doc Brown goes wrong (but oh so right), Marty goes back in time to when his parents fell in love…well, at least, when they were supposed to fall in love.

Meet Doc thirty years before he discovers time travel, fall in love with a sexually-aggressive Lorraine, and witness George as he turns from wimp to super wimp to adorable hero. If Marty can’t get his parents together, he may not have a future to return to.

Put on your Hazmat suits, turn your Flux Capacitors on, and generate 1.21 Jigglewatts – we’re about to send you back to a much sexier time.
