Please join us in the theater at the Clark County Library, 1401 E Flamingo Rd, at 7pm, Thursday, march 20, for an exciting panel discussion on the past, present, and future of burlesque on Las Vegas.
Las Vegas is the “Entertainment Capital of the World,” and for decades, “entertainment” in Las Vegas meant burlesque. From Harold Minsky’s first revues at the Dunes, to Lili St. Cyr’s residency at the El Rancho, and through the glamour years of the 1970s, visitors to Vegas took in some of burlesque’s greatest stars.
Learn about the history of burlesque in Las Vegas from the 1950s through the present-day burlesque revival, featuring burlesque legends and contemporary performers including: burlesque legends Tempest Storm and Tiffany Carter, 2009 Miss Exotic World Kalani Kokonuts, Las Vegas burlesque Studio headmistress and performer Cha Cha Velour, and performer Haute Couture. Following a slideshow of images drawn from the Burlesque Hall of Fame’s extensive collection by the museum’s director, each performer will talk about her career.
The program will end with a Q&A session and signing by the performers.
This event is free and open to the public.
