Here's a sneak peek at Bazooka's 'Frivolitease' burlesque show (slideshow)

Posted By on Wed, Mar 30, 2011 at 8:00 AM

We have to admit, when Bazooka's Showgirls invited us to a dress rehearsal of their new burlesque show, "Frivolitease," we had low expectations. The word "burlesque" has been bandied about so often with so many performers in the last few years, we didn't expect more than a halfhearted fan dance and a few limp tassels attached to titties that didn't care to shake.

Were we wrong. This show rocks. (Click the photo to see the slideshow.)



For the last two months, dancers have been honing classic burlesque routines and more contemporary acrobatics in ways that remind you why burlesque is an art form. Goddamn if these women didn't put their hearts into everything, from elaborate costuming to creating a human centrifuge with just two strips of silk and a too-tight corset. The show plays this Friday and Saturday nights at the 17th and Main club. Check out this slideshow of the dress rehearsal if you're still not convinced, and thank us Monday. You're welcome.
