Glitter-and-glamour overload alert. We’ve loaded up shots of almost every performer taking the stage at the upcoming New York Burlesque Festival, with the eleventh go-round of the sprawling and sparkling showcase taking over Gotham’s burly-Q world from Friday, September 26 to Sunday 29. We’ll post photos from the festival itself soon after it ends—but you really should catch the amazing action in person, so buy your tickets pronto.
