In the 21st edition of Thirsty Girl and Angie Pontani's world-renowned festival, burlesque artists from around the world pull out the stops (and tassels) to showcase the finest the art form has to offer on four successive nights.
More than 100 eye-popping performances from international leading burlesque and variety entertainers fill the stages at four nightclubs. The festival typically brings together over 2,500 enthusiastic audience members for live music, DJs, circus performers, and, of course, burlesque and boylesque. Plus, expect a shopping boutique with custom corsets, pasties, hair ornaments, vintage dresses, lingerie, couture gloves and more.
The festival kicks off on Thursday, September 28 with The Teaser Party at The Bell House in Brooklyn (don't miss the VIP experience on the history of g-strings). Then there's The Premiere Party at Brooklyn Bowl on Friday, September 29 and The Saturday Spectacular at Sony Hall on Saturday, September 30. The fest wraps up with The Golden Pastie Awards at Le Poisson Rouge on Sunday, October 1.
