The latest production from New York-based troupe Rhinestone Gorilla Burlesque is either going to make your dreams come true, or ruin your childhood memories. If you've ever wanted to see the Animaniacs onstage and in full burlesque form, then it's the former case. In this production, siblings Wakko, Yakko, and Dot have fallen on hard times since their hit '90s cartoon — which featured humorous nods to Broadway musicals and old-Hollywood iconography — went off the air. Other familiar characters will be on hand as well, including Rita and the Runt, Scrappy the Squirrel, and Chicken Boo. Get ready for some big musical numbers; you're about to see glitter pasties on some of your most beloved cartoon characters.
