The producers behind the annual Southwest Burlesque Showcase are branching out. We’re bringing eager audiences another opportunity to see the classic art of burlesque in a high-class, theatrical setting. On Saturday, Aug. 24, we’re taking over the South Broadway Cultural Center for a night of naughty good humor, sexy bump-and-grind and a few cocktails to get things started. There will be a full bar in the theater lobby to wet your whistle before curtain time. When the lights go down, take your seats and revel in a selection of veteran tassel masters from throughout the Land of Enchantment as well as some of New Mexico’s finest up-and-coming ‘teaser talent. We’ve recruited performers from a variety of local troupes including Albuquerque’s Burlesque Noir and Sons of Perdition, Las Cruces’ Desert Dolls and Santa Fe’s Zircus Erotique. To give things that extra kick, we’ve also brought in a few out-of-town ringers. The headliners of this year’s Southwest Burlesque Invitational will be the alt.vaudeville stylings of St. Louis’ Lola van Ella & Sammich the Tramp and the sexy ensemble of Austin’s electric Jigglewatts Burlesque Revue! Grab your
tickets now, before they sell out.
