LUKE THIGH-WALKER: Get freaky with Luke, Leia, Han, and, yes, even Jabba.

Coming to the States from a galaxy Down Under, The Empire Strips Back is poised to touch down in San Jose this week with a show that embraces the naughty side of The Force. The brainchild of Russall S. Beattie—the Australian oddball also responsible for burlesque takes on The Wizard of Oz and Game of Thrones—this show will feature choreographed dances, stripteases, sexy droids and pyrotechnics. Audiences can expect to see Princess Leia in slave bikini, natch. But the Empire’s talented performers will also take on Chewbacca, Han Solo, Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader. The tour wraps up in San Francisco on Saturday. (KL)
