Arnold Schwarzenegger may be the ultimate macho movie star, but that doesn’t mean he couldn’t do without some feathers and glitter.
And on Sept. 1, burlesque troupe Casino O’Fortune Cookie Productions hosts a leather and pasties-filled tribute to Ahnald at the Coney Island Sideshow.
“We do tributes to über-male movie and rock stars that inspire us, and he’s the ultimate male macho movie star,” said producer and performer Clams Casino, whose previous shows have included tributes to Bruce Campbell, Patrick Swayze and Van Halen. “We like mixing über male testosterone with glitz and glamorous burlesque.”
Indeed, the night will feature lots of leather, tank tops and jeans, as well as sexy striptease inspired by pumping iron, the Governator’s recent nanny scandal, and the films “Conan the Barbarian,” and, of course, “The Terminator,” the feature that spawned a thousand imitators — and one liners — but surely none that included two half-naked women undressing each other.
“I don’t want to give away the act,” said Casino, who’ll perform the act with Anita Cookie. “But the scene where the Terminator makes the regular guy give him his clothes was really a point of inspiration for us, it’s safe to say.”
“Hasta La Vista Baby: Schwarzenegger Burlesque!” at Sideshows by the Seashore [1208 Surf Ave. between Stillwell Avenue and W. 12th Street in Coney Island, (718) 372-5159], Sept. 1 at 9 pm. Tickets $12. For info, visit casinoofortunecookie.com.
