Angie Pontani

Thirsty Girl Productions and Pontani Productions are once again teaming up for the annual New York Burlesque Festival. Dozens upon dozens of artists will strut their stuff through Gotham from Thursday, Sept 29 till Sunday, Oct 2. If you're hankering to get a head start on the proceedings, we've amassed glamorous photos of almost every one of the talented, lovely girls and boys participating in this sprawling edition (the festival's ninth). But you really should catch these paradigms of pulchritude in the flesh, so head to the Bell House on Thursday 29, Brooklyn Bowl on Friday 30, B.B. King Blues Club & Grill on Saturday 1 and Highline Ballroom on Sunday 2, and prepare to have your mind seriously blown. Go to for more info.
