My oh my, we can hardly breath for our fluttering hearts and lashes we are so excited. Before we burst we’ll just let out the news:
The renown Texas burlesque troupe the Jigglewatts are coming to visit their Western cousins BurlEscapades for a showdown at Joe’s Grotto Wednesday, August 6th.
Featuring co~Founders of the Jigglewatts: Coco Lectric, the raven-haired beauty declared Queen in both New Orleans and Las Vegas festivals, and “the poised porcelain princess of tease,” pin-up model and dancer Ruby Joule, the gem you’d love to polish!
Also featured from Jigglewatts: the platinum blonde stunner known as “Texas’ Very Own Gold Rush” Goldie Candela, the gorgeous songstress and dancer Jolie Goodnight, the exotic Layna D’Luna, and last but not least the lovely Something Blue.
This is a one night, one time only South meets West show that you won’t want to miss as BurlEscapades joins the stage with classic favourites as well as new acts never performed on this stage.
And what is a burlesque show without comedy? Joining the dazzling dames and gallivanting gents on-stage will be Jade Esteban Estrada, “America’s Prince of Pride”: performer and comedian extraordinaire.
We do hope you all will come and see us not just SOME time, but 7:30 sharp on August 6th. Of course, if you want to see all the fun up close and personal, you better get your front row tickets quick: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/770531.
Come dressed with a smile, and if you don’t, we can guarantee that as we undress our own Southern hospitality on stage you will at least leave with one…
Okay, it isn’t QUITE the new year yet and we get that, but we are so excited to announce our partnership with Joe’s Grotto that we about to burst.
Starting in January of 2014, BurlEscapades will be producing and performing quarterly at Joe’s Grotto. Expect all sorts of tricks up our sleeves including swag bags for our V.I.P’s, photobooths, salty treats and sweets, and entertainment that is just not our saucy bumping and grinding!
Here’s a little sneak peek of what is in store for you:
January 25th – “Nerdlesque” – Joe’s Grotto – From comic book heroes and villains to cult classics. Burly versions of geekdom!
March 22nd – “Cinelesque” – Joe’s Grotto – You loved it in 2013 and it’s back! Cinema style burlesque complete with fresh popcorn.
July 5th – “‘Merica” – Joe’s Grotto – It’s July 5th and the day before is slightly important to some independent folks. Get it?
November 1st – “Fright Night” – Joe’s Grotto – The Day of the Dead. From urban legends to the monster in the closet, bring a friend to hold your hand through this one.
Tickets for the first show will be opening soon, so keep your eye out!
