Dita Von Teese in Burlesque: Strip Strip Hooray!
From small-town girl to beauty mogul and international sensation, Dita Von Teese’s name has become synonymous with glamour, a quality she now brings to her 90-minute revue, Burlesque: Strip Strip Hooray! Joined by burlesque luminaries such as MC Murray Hill, Natasha Estrada, Prince Poppycock, Monsieur Romeo, and Lada Nikolska of Crazy Horse Paris, Von Teese takes audiences on a tour of some of her sultriest routines. Her trademark “Martini Glass” act marks a highlight of the evening: clad in a haute couture tuxedo, she sheds the formalwear piece by piece to reveal an alluring corset, then washes her troubles away with an olive sponge inside a giant art-deco cocktail glass. Other routines include the feather-filled “Bird of Paradise” and “Rhinestone Cowgirl,” complete with twirling guns, sparkling spurs, and a mechanical bull.<p>
Several decades of disparate architectural styles stand at the corner of 69th and Ludlow: an old-fashioned radio tower atop the Doric columns of a faux-classical cupola atop a streamlined marquee that broadcasts the year the Tower Theatre opened as a music venue: 1972. That's when it began helping introduce the world to such acts as David Bowie, Genesis, and Bruce Springsteen. Inside, red lights glow over an auditorium done up in the 1920s style of the movie palace that originally filled the venue, with marble pillars, Italianate archways, and an enormous light fixture that resembles an old film reel.
