State of Undress: Burlesque & Drag Listings, 5.21-5.24


By Angie Z.

Hello Kittens! The dimly lit arenas of flesh that our fine city fosters will offer no relief from the building heat this week. Fill up your summer tonic of choice, and work that hand fan, because your every growing options of ocular delight are going from slow burn to full on southern fried. 

 

Among your choices of entertainment, is a magnolia among dandelions: Roxie Le Rouge's "Big Deal Burlesque." This expertly curated show was formed in 2011 by Miss Roxie le Rouge, a.k.a. "The Best Booty in the Big Easy," to introduce the gospel of New Orleans burlesque and variety around the south. Miss Le Rouge is also a featured member of Fleur De Tease and Slow Burn Burlesque. If you have not had the opportunity to take a gander at said booty, you are in luck! She hosts a monthly feature with her all-star, rotating cast at Siberia and Freret Publiq House, both happening this week (Siberia on Thursday and Freret on Saturday)! Go on and see what this petite firecracker and her chosen band of misfits have prepared for you.

Until next time, Meow!
