Glamour Puss Burlesque
We're sorry. We dunked you in an Unsexy tank of ugly and despicable, then left you to drown. You'll have GLENN BECK's mug in your head all weekend.
Unless, that is, you heed our advice and traipse on down to see our friends at the GREAT BURLESQUE EXPO, who have got the cure for Unsexy. We're a lucky town to be blessed with so many fine organizations dedicated to showing everything but nipple and box, but once a year it gets even better. Tonight? Get your granny-porn fix as the genuine stars of classic burlesque strut what their mommas (and their kids!) gave 'em during the opening-night "Rhinestone Revue." Saturday night, "The Main Event" brings in a slew of national headliners including the ATOMIC CHERRIES, GLAMOUR PUSS BURLESQUE, ESTHER DE VILLE, MISS ELAINE YES, and a dozen more. (Last year's crop was pretty amazing, you can relive some of the video highlights here.) On Sunday night there's a newcomers' showcase, and all weekend long the Expo hosts master classes, workshops, an art show, and a costume exhibit.
Tickets are $50 per day, $80 for the weekend, or $10 for an exhibit pass that includes limited access to some classes.
