Produced by none other than burlesque vet Angie Pontani and Gary Beeber (director of the documentary Dirty Martini and the New Burlesque), and directed by downtown-theater pot-stirrer Trav S.D., the weekly Burlesque-A-Pades aims to chronicle the history of the art form via performances and real-life stories. Angie, her sisters Helen and Tara, and an array of top burly-Q talent—including the Maine Attraction, Gal Friday, Pinkie Special and cohosts Tigger! and Albert Cadabra—will be appearing onstage. Sure, it’ll be informative, but we have a feeling that there’ll be enough bump-’n’-grind action to keep even casual fans happy.
