The Crescent City welcomes a new burlesque festival. In September, producer Rick Delaup will celebrate all things burlesque with striptease showcases, workshops, vendors and more. The New Orleans Burlesque Festival takes place on September 11-13 at the Harrah's Casino in New Orleans. Rick says this is the only festival dedicated to classic burlesque:
"The nightly showcases recall the New Orleans of the Forties and Fifties, when New Orleans was known as "The Most Interesting City in America." Bourbon Street was its epicenter, and it became world famous for its concentration of nightclub shows, and the New Orleans Burlesque Festival brings back all of the excitement and glamour of the period."
The line up includes performers from around the country including Michelle L'amour, Jo "Boobs" Weldon and Catherine D'lish.
