Taking a sex-positive approach to ‘Wizard of Oz’: PS Burlesque (Episode 238)


The women of PS Burlesque join me this week in advance of their new show, “Dorothy Does Oz,” a Wizard of Oz-themed nerdlesque.

Trash Bandicooch (PS Burlesque marketing, improperly referred to as “Crash Bandicooch” early in the episode), Layla Bird (“Dorothy Does Oz” writer) and Baum- Shell Belle (Dorothy) join me for burlesque conversation and pizza from Big G’s in Wrigleyville.

Discussed this week:

  • Mac & cheese pizza!
  • I was brought to tears as Trash Bandicooch was telling a story.
  • The origin story (nerdlesque-friendly term) of PS Burlesque.
  • How did Layla approach writing Wizard of Oz from a burlesque perspective?
  • Is Chicago’s burlesque/nerdlesque scene competitive?
  • Sex positivity: Explained!
  • GO SEE “DOROTHY DOES OZ!”
