The Boehner Sisters

  • The Tank 312 West 36th Street New York, NY, 10018 United States (map)


Not one year after Budapest's most well attended and evenly tied sporting event of 2017, 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 a world-renowned trombonist. These #GirlsWhoLift and their handsome 'bonist will perform a highly dangerous, recently legal feat of boom and bang. Witness its premiere, right here in the Big Apple.
