JUST ANNOUNCED: Titans of Tease 2011

We are thrilled to reveal the lineup for the 54TH ANNUAL BURLESQUE REUNION SHOWCASE! On June 3, 2011 the gorgeous, 850-seat Orleans Showroom will play host to a once-in-a-lifetime lineup of legendary stripteasers–including venerated veterans of the ’40s, ’50s, ’60s & ’70s burlesque stage, many of whom have shimmied their way across America (and the world’s) finest stages for the better part of the last half-century!

An ode to vintage-style striptease in all its risque glory, the Reunion Showcase has its roots in the annual gatherings of dancers held by EDL (and Burlesque Hall of Fame) founder, Jennie Lee, beginning in 1957–a tradition we’re honored to uphold, in the form of a living, breathing, bump-and-grinding testament to burlesque “as it was.”

Scheduled to perform:
The Cosmic Queen...

Behind The Garter Belt: SATAN’S ANGEL

When I saw Satan’s Angel perform her fire tassels routine out in the Mojave Desert heat in 2005’s Miss Exotic World pageant, I was speechless. This woman was Tina Turner and Mick Jagger rolled up into one fiery package. She is the rock n’ roll of burlesque! I’ve been fortunate to have this outstanding woman as a mentor in my own fire tassels act and Toronto will get to see her in action this July for The Toronto Burlesque Festival.

Note: The capitals are the way Satan’s Angel always types so I’ve retained that.
