​The Boehner Sisters ​Rosa Palmeri & Natalie Rich

About This Show

Not one year after Budapest’s most well attended and evenly tied sporting event of 2016, reigning strongwoman champions Zofia and Zorka Boehner have joined forces to take on the scraggly remains of America’s Vaudeville circuit in a marvelous display of Hungarian strength and brassy charm! You can expect iron-bending, anchor-chucking, chain-snapping, and a bit of song ‘n dance… all accompanied by two world-renowned trombonists! These #GirlsWhoLift a nd their handsome ‘bonists will perform a highly dangerous, recently legal feat of BOOM and BANG! Witness its premiere, right here in the Big Apple!
