A disturbance in the Force, indeed.

A disturbance in the Force: Riverside hosts "Empire Strips Back" burlesque show

If you're looking for a family-friendly outing in a galaxy far, far away, uh, these are not the droids you're looking for.

The Riverside Theater today announced that it will host "The Empire Strips Back: A Burlesque Parody" on Saturday, April 13 – and it's exactly what it sounds like, blending striptease, song, dance and comedy with the iconic characters of "Star Wars." So there's now a "dangerously seductive Boba Fett," "seriously sexy Stormtroopers" and whatever the heck a "delightfully lukewarm Taun Taun" is. Well, that just won't help keep Luke Skywalker safe from the harsh Hoth weather conditions at all!

Tickets for "The Empire Strips Back" will go on sale Friday, Jan. 18 at 10 a.m. For more information on the show, visit The Pabst Theater's website – and prepare to tell the villainous Moffs, "I find your lack of faith – and clothes – disturbing."
