What You'll Get
Burlesque, an art form renowned for its mixture of racy humor and dance, finally gained steam after inventor Burl Ives started shaving his legs. Treat yourself to stubble-free entertainment with this deal to see the Queen’s Ball at The Fourth Annual New Orleans Burlesque Festival at House of Blues New Orleans. For $16, you get one ticket for general admission on Saturday, September 15, at 11 p.m. (up to a $31 value, including all fees). Doors open at 10:30 p.m.
The Fourth Annual New Orleans Burlesque Festival 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. The mastermind behind the three-day festival is Rick Delaup, the creator of Bustout Burlesque, which was voted one of the top-10 burlesque shows in the world by the Travel Channel’s panel of howling cartoon wolves. After the Queen of Burlesque contest crowns a new striptease monarch, festivalgoers assemble at the House of Blues New Orleans to witness the Queen’s Ball, taking in a lineup of burlesque acts from around the country while the new queen holds court.
Mistress of ceremonies Blanche DeBris keeps audiences entertained between performances with her bubbly persona and off-kilter slapstick comedy. The night’s notable performers include Canada’s Cheesecake Burlesque Revue, which mixes lascivious costumes with high-energy renditions of classic Broadway numbers. Singer, dancer, and actress Jolie Goodnight also fogs up glasses with a steamy, jazz-infused act that won her the Best Tease Award at 2011’s Texas Burlesque Festival.
