More than any other single entity you can name, Coney Island USA is responsible for the burlesque and sideshow renaissance, and while the not-for-profit organization is still working hard to promote that scene, it’s also digging its way out of the mess left by Sandy. This year’s fund-raising extravaganza—featuring a theatrical performance based on founder Dick Zigun’s 1982 tract, The Burlesque Manifesto—brings together more than 50 glittering performers to aid in that effort.
