The 9th Annual New York Burlesque Festival (The Premiere Party)
The Annual New York Burlesque Festival is the largest and most acclaimed festival of its kind and has attracted sold-out crowds since it’s premiere in 2002. This year marks the 9th Annual festival and producers, Thirsty Girl & Pontani Sisters Productions will once again, serve up 4 nights of glitter and glamour in Gotham, with over 120 eye-popping performances from the worlds’ leading burlesque and variety entertainers at four of NYC’s hottest performance venues. In addition to tassels and tail feathers, this year’s festival offers live music, international DJ’s, variety and circus performers, boylesque, and a burlesque boutique where you can try on custom corsets, peruse pasties, hair ornaments, vintage dresses, lingerie and even get a burlesque make-over.
Friday, September 30th, let the games begin with this notoriously debaucherous Premiere Party at Williamsburg’s hippest retreat, Brooklyn Bowl. This large venue is part bowling alley, part performance space and part restaurant, making it the perfect partner for the premiere party which features over 20 burlesque beauties from the weekends’ spectacle of stars. Expect high energy, cutting edge burlesque at this legendary night. DJ Momotaro turn the evening into a late night dance party flanked by some of NYC’s hottest go-go dancers.
