The Ruby Revue Burlesque Show
Few things say “America” like fishnet stockings and a feather boa. And at The Ruby Revue Burlesque Show, the traditions of striptease, pinups, and variety shows that have laced through American history receive due tribute. Tuxedoed jokesmith Edmund Birch emcees the salute, weaving rib-tickling patter into his introductions of pinup models and performers. Ruby Revue founder Missy Lisa, who won 2013’s Miss Viva Las Vegas title, takes charge of the cast with a steamy blend of humor and sexuality, warming up audiences’ collars for Ginger Valentine, crowned Queen of Burlesque at the 2011 New Orleans Burlesque Festival. Also breaking out their corsets, tassels, and see-through skirts are the belly-dancing Alia, the break-dancing Shelbelle Shamrock, Houston pinup Miss V Haven, the purring Melissa Meaow, and the classically trained vocalist Renee Holiday.
To give the dancers time to powder their faces between numbers, the smooth-talking illusionist Confetti Eddie keeps crowds going. Aided by his tantalizing assistants, he uses sleight of hand to elicit dazzled applause.
House of Blues Dallas
To keep the spirit of its musical roots ever near, House of Blues Dallas keeps a metal box of mud from the Delta Mississippi beneath its stage. Summoning the spirit and raw grit contained therein, local and national performers enliven the venue’s wood-laden auditorium, lined with art such as Alan Sainte James Boudrot’s A Dream Come True. The historic White Swan building, a remnant of the 1920s coffee-processing plant, hosts this mix of traditional and contemporary, adding its open architecture to every show.
