This year, the New York Burlesque Festival, spread out over four nights—from Thursday, September 25 through Sunday 28—and as many venues, celebrates a decade-plus-one-year of bump-and-grind fun. Put together by Thirsty Girl Productions and Pontani Productions, it's easily the biggest burly-Q event that the city has to offer, with scores of performers from around the city, the country and the world all taking the stage in a riot of glitter and feathers, leather and lace, and plenty of bare flesh.
