Coney Island Spring Gala

On Saturday, March 9, Webster Hall hosted the annual Coney Island USA Spring Gala, and as you might expect from Gotham’s sideshow and burlesque headquarters, eyes were popped and minds were blown. The night harkened back to The Burlesque Manifesto, the 30-year-old tract penned by CIUSA mastermind Dick Zigun that heralded the start of the current burlesque renaissance; with the likes of Adam the First Real Man, Jo “Boobs” Weldon, the Schlep Sisters, Gal Friday, Insectavora, Ray Valenz and Zigun himself taking the stage, tribute was paid in high style.
