By Angie Z.

Hello there, kittens! I'm writing to you longingly from the dry heat of the Nevada desert. The Burlesque Hall of Fame weekend is about to kickoff, and show people from across the globe are making their annual pilgramage to Las Vegas' ill informed tribute hotel to the Big Easy, The Orleans. But, do not fret, darling pets! Many of the Crescent City's own world class performers have stayed home and are eager to entertain.

Cantina Cool: Star Wars Burlesque


By Jeremy Ford

New Orleans is a city perpetually sinking into a gulf of uniqueness and creativity. It has cradled legendary musicians, innovative artists, and influential writers, and been the setting for energetic, as well as peculiar productions capable of vivifying any eye or ear. The tradition of acceptance and creative encouragement continues with the Society of Sin’s Pulp Science Fiction: A Star Wars Burlesque Play.

In Mid City, the Bayou Boogaloo is ready to go. For the fested-out, there are lots of other events. Rap, theatre, burlesque, and a classic 80’s arena show are all kicking off this evening. On this day in 1915, Huey Long passed the Bar and became a “full-fledged lawyer.” Now, more to do tonight.

Meow, Kittens! Your list of scintillating options continues to swell fuller with every passing week. Isn't it delicious? This weekend, I'm proud to be part of the third installment of "Storyville Rising," a unique immersive cabaret experience based on the famous red light district that thrived nearly a century ago in our city. The show is produced and curated by Seattle's Armitage Shanks and Jesse-Belle Jones, and New Orleans own Mistress Kali.

On St. Claude, Ginger Licous is bringing her edgy burlesque to the Hi Ho. Today, April 16, is the date New Orleans was officially founded in 1718. Now, more to do a few hundred years later.
