Montreal's burlesque icon Miss Sugarpuss, recently voted on of Montreal's Most Desirable Women, plans to put together a Montreal Burlesque Festival, where the historical part of the art is emphasized as much as the bumping and grinding.
"For us to not have a vibrant burlesque culture is ironic," she told the Montreal Mirror, noting that Montreal was the last place in Canada to establish a revival, despite being a hub of burlesque since the ’30s. "We live alongside this history, why wouldn’t we show off our city from that angle—the sexy underbelly?"
