More Information


The Flaming Dames, Chicago’s premier concept burlesque troupe, returns once more, seducing audiences with their all new (non-revealing) cabaret revue, ‘Torch’.  Famous for ‘taking it off’, the Dames will be ‘turning it on’ with nothing but an arsenal of sweet voices.  You’ll be lulled into a sensual trance as the ladies perform a collection of classic torch songs (in The Spot’s intimate green room) with the same entertainment and energy that have made them one of the hottest acts in town.  And once the Flaming Dames light the night on fire, you’ll leave carrying a ‘Torch’ for them.  So don’t wait — the ladies are expecting you.
