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

I love Jacques Brel's music and once again the cast involved did an excellent job. I have seen it before @ the Zipper Theatre and it was more theatrical and excitng since the cast had more room to move about.The Triad is a bit too small and there's very little leg room.I also suggest they make it known ahead of time they only accept cash!

Quotes & Highlights
