56TH ANNUAL BURLESQUE HALL OF FAME CELEBRATION SHOWCASES

LEGENDS, PIONEERS AND INNOVATORS

Classic and neo-burlesque performers from around the world to strut their stuff

in celebration of the art, heart and history of the bump & grind

 

March 25, 2013 - Las Vegas, NV - The Burlesque Hall of Fame's 56th annual all-star Burlesque Showcase will take place Thursday, May 30 - Sunday, June 2 at the Orleans Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas.

 

A unique entertainment and competition event, Burlesque Hall of Fame (BHoF) Weekend brings together the theatricality of neo-burlesque performance and the charm of classic striptease. Nightly showcases feature today's top burlesque performers-female and male-from around the world, as well as "vintage vixens"-stars of the burlesque stage at the height of the art's mid-20th century heyday.

 

"The Tournament of Tease is the Academy Awards of burlesque," says 2012's reigning Queen of Burlesque, Imogen Kelly (Sydney, Australia). "And the reunion showcase doesn't just talk about burlesque's history-it puts the people who made that history back on stage. The Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend is the pre-eminent event celebrating this modern art form."

 

With classes, discussion panels and vending during the day and showcases each night, the BHoF Weekender appeals to fans and performers alike:

  • Thursday's Movers, Shakers and Innovators show features international performances from burlesque's cutting-edge
  • Friday's 56th Annual "Titans of Tease" Reunion brings together classic stars from burlesque's heyday, showcasing vintage-style striptease
  • Saturday's 23rd Annual Tournament of Tease puts the world's top neo-burlesque entertainers in competition for best debut, duo, group and boylesque categories, and for the coveted title, "Reigning Queen of Burlesque"
  • Sunday's All Stars & Icons gala rounds out the weekend with a spectacular line-up of inspirational icons and BHoF titleholders past and present 

 

Tickets are available starting April 5 via http://bhofweekend.com/ticketsales and at The Orleans Showroom Box Office the week of the show. Schedule details can be found on www.BHoFWeekend.com
