(NEW YORK, NY) -- Rick's Cabaret International, Inc. (NASDAQ: Rick), the premier publicly traded chain of gentlemen's clubs, has formed a marketing partnership with "Burleigh Grime$," a new Off-Broadway comedy about a young Wall Street broker whose adventures include - among other things - a visit to a local New York gentleman's club.
The relationship between the real gentleman's club and the fictional one began May 15 when members of the cast of Roger Kirby's stage comedy appeared as guests of honor at the "Due Diligence Ball," a party thrown at the midtown Rick's Cabaret-NYC for stockbrokers, analysts and other financial industry professionals.
Cast members of "Burleigh Grime$" attending the Due Diligence Ball included Emmy and Golden Globe nominee Wendie Malick ("Just Shoot Me"), Mark Moses ("Desperate Housewives"), James Badge Dale ("24") and Nancy Anderson ("Kiss 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 David Yazbek ("Dirty Rotten Scoundrels," "The Full Monty").
Throughout the run of "Burleigh Grime$" - which also includes a cameo video appearance by Jim Cramer of CNBC's "Mad Money" -- information about Rick's NASDAQ-traded stock will appear as part of the on stage action. Patrons of "Burleigh Grime$" 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 Grime$." Music from the show will also be played by the club's DJs as the regular entertainers do their cabaret acts.
