“The Bodacious Ballets”
BARBARELLA : Queen of the Galaxy
Barbarella is a liberated marriage of wit and sex. Based on a French comic strip by Jean-Claude Forest in the 1960’s, the story concerns the adventures of a 41st-century woman, who pretty much gets it on with whomever asks.
“Your mission Barbarella: find Durand-Durand.”
