For 13 years, Rhinestone Gorilla has been entertaining audiences in historic theatres, smoky nightclubs, and dingey dive bars alike. Whether in our native NYC or on tour, we're always creating and presenting new performance work that's personal, political, funny, sexy, interactive, heartfelt, queer, and joyous. Our shows are joyous, goofy, sloppy, sexy, political, heartfelt, life-affirming celebrations.
Now, Rhinestone Gorilla is making the shift to a new medium with the premiere of our original scripted web series, At Home with Rhinestone Gorilla, on October 8th on Burlesque Galaxy. At Home with Rhinestone Gorilla is a sketch show / sitcom hybrid by and about burlesque people that’s one part Brooklyn nightlife, one part children’s television.
Follow the Rhinestone Gorilla sparkle gang on this colorful, surreal celebration of kitsch, nostalgia, lo-fi glamour, and the complexities of decades-long female friendship. The people in your neighborhood have never been this fabulous!
