Rick's Cabaret Gentlemen's Club Chain Joins Off-Broadway Comedy "Burleigh Grime$" In Marketing Partnership
NEW YORK CITY-(May 18, 2006)- Rick's Cabaret International,
the premier publicly traded chain of gentlemen's clubs, has formed
a marketing partnership with "Burleigh
," a new Off-Broadway comedy about a young
Wall Street broker whose adventures include – among other
things – a visit to a local New York gentleman's club.
The relationship between the real gentleman's club and the fictional
one began May 15 when members of the cast of Roger Kirby's
stage comedy appeared as guests of honor at the "Due Diligence
Ball," a party thrown at the midtown Rick's Cabaret-NYC for
stockbrokers, analysts and other financial industry professionals.
Cast members of "Burleigh Grime$
the Due Diligence Ball included Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Wendie
("Just Shoot Me"), Mark Moses
("Desperate Housewives"), James Badge Dale
("24") and Nancy Anderson
Me, Kate"). They were introduced on the cabaret stage as the
club DJ played "Pinnochio’s Nose," an original rock
'n roll song from the show composed by Tony and Grammy Award nominee
("Dirty Rotten Scoundrels,"
"The Full Monty").
Throughout the run of "Burleigh Grime$
– which also includes a cameo video appearance by Jim
's "Mad Money
-- information about Rick's NASDAQ-traded stock will appear as part
of the onstage action. Patrons of "Burleigh Grime$
will be offered free admission materials and The Girls of Rick's
will also hand out co-branded flyers across the street from the
club at Madison Square Garden and Penn Station to help promote "Burleigh
." Music from the show will also be played by
the club's DJs as the regular entertainers do their cabaret acts.
