The best tassel-swingers in the country are invited to battle it out for a shot at the coveted title of Burlesque Idol. Already a hit in the UK and Australia, this new live competition show comes to New York, ready to provide an exciting, elegant evening of adult entertainment. A comedian host introduces the three-judge panel, who range from famous burlesque queens to promoters and producers. Then the contestants strut their stuff, each putting their own spin on the art of striptease, with gimmicks ranging from fire-breathing to ballet and beyond. Every admission comes with a ballot so you can vote for your favorite, and every show kicks off with a burlesque lesson -- just in case you want to come back and compete. Learn More

The evening was enjoyable but not great, though a decent value for the price. The burlesque dancers gave solid performances, and "Throwdini" (a knife thrower, not a magician, as we were frequently reminded) was quite entertaining. But the interludes from the MC - an actor portraying a borscht belt comedian - went on too long, especially in the latter part of the show. It was funny at first but by the end it seemed to make the show drag. If those interludes would be abbreviated, the show would be much tighter.

I thought Burlesque was classy dancing like a step above a strip club, but I guess I was wrong or had my expectations too high. The main girl was tatted up and down. There was a magician after intermission... Ehhh just felt like I was in a cheesy...continued
Quotes & Highlights
“Gotham Burlesque, however, breaks through the malaise of this neo-burlesque to give the audience a thoroughly fun ninety minutes. These talented performers did a great job not only performing the art of the striptease but also finding the humor in the art. Gypsy Rose Lee would be proud.”—BroadwayWorld.com
