Bustout Burlesque evokes the heyday of Bourbon Street nightclubs for adults-only audiences in an authentic 1950s spectacle of showgirls, jazz, comedy, and hot-under-the-collar choreography. Voted one of the top 10 burlesque shows in the world by the Travel Channel’s panel of howling cartoon wolves, Bustout Burlesque’s rotating professional cast and alluring guests strip and tease in elegant routines that make ears steam and bow ties spin. Shimmy Showdown champion GoGo McGregor peacocks in a feather fan dance and makes audiences envy her bed of nails while “Goddess of the Bodice” Athena, seen on HBO’s Treme, adds powerful vocals to her harem-dancer routine and blonde bombshell Stormy Gayle makes the most of her statuesque frame and acting chops.<p>
The traditional New Orleans swing of the Bustout Burlesque jazz band soundtracks the ruffling of feathers with trombones and cornets, as pupils dilate to an antique-accented display of the wholesome and risqué. With bewitching sirens, cathouse lighting, seductive songbirds, and a comic magician emcee, Bustout Burlesque entices all genders and generations with charm, elegance, and sauciness.
House of Blues New Orleans
At home in the French Quarter, the House of Blues New Orleans keeps its heritage ever near with a metal box of mud from the Mississippi Delta hidden beneath its stage. Around this, more than 290 pieces of folk art—one of the largest collections in the country—decorate the walls. Also bringing its Southern charm and homestyle feel are hardwood floors, no fewer than three bars, and two levels for concert viewing.
