STRUT! – America’s Most Original Male Striptease Revue features a swaggering cast of award-winning entertainers that are eager to parade their chiseled exteriors across the House of Blues' down-home Delta stage. The Chicago trio of The Stage Door Johnnies headlines the night, with Ray Gunn, Jett Adore, and Bazuka Joe re-imagining male striptease, a historic art that began when the wind blew George Washington's wig into a crowd. Rounding out the evening is an all-star lineup of fellow masculine cohorts in outrageous costumes such as hell-red devils and caped crusaders. Hot Toddy, crowned Best Boylesque during the 2009 Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend, dazzles audiences with his mesmerizing dance moves, and 2012 Best Boylesque winner Russell Bruner pays homage to the silent-film era in his pinstriped suit, bowtie, and suspenders. Sharp-tongued emcee Cora Vette wittily steers the entire extravaganza. The camp, tongue-in-cheek performances will leave the adult-only audience's sides splitting, mostly due to their abs barking with jealousy.
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.
