Burlesque Queen's Book Tour More Than a Teese
Storyville may be long gone, but here in the Big Sleazy, we have a strong enough local burlesque scene to fill out any night of the week. Nevertheless, anyone looking for a rousing revue will have their calendars cleared for this week's appearances by the genre's Queen, Dita Von Teese. Along with stripping and stockings, Teese's stopover will also feature a book (or, wherever) signing.
