The Stripper - a new show at St James to make your cheeks blush... Club Extravaganza takes residence in the Studio for six weeks!
“A sizzling new addition to London’s musical scene. A definite must-see for musical fans!”
“Smutty and sexy…it’s the Full Monty”
“Tremendous fun. Sebastien Torkia is excellent as Wheeler”
“A thrillingly accomplished cast of five. Skilfully performed and energetically scored”
It is 1961, in Pine City, California and some broad is threatening to throw herself off the top of the fanciest hotel in town. There’s trouble brewing and Lieutenant Al Wheeler wants answers. First stop, Club Extravaganza where we meet delectable Deadpan Dolores. Her name says it all… she’s not shy, so what’s she hiding? As Wheeler is thrust into a sleazy underworld of strip-joints and lost lonely hearts, the truth isn’t the only thing he uncovers.
Based on Carter Brown‘s beloved pulp fiction story, with music and lyrics by Richard Hartley and Richard O’Brien, the writers of cult favourite The Rocky Horror Show.

The Stripper At St James Theatre: "a fabulous... musical noir with lots of camp and sleaze thrown in"
As a big fan of Richard O’Brien and Richard Hartley’s Rocky Horror (Picture) Show I couldn’t resist the opportunity to see The Stripper, a revival by the production team of Southwark Playhouse’s Toxic Avenger and King’s Head’s Shock Treatment (an adaptation of the film) of the The Stripper at St James Theatre.
