Dita Von Teese is an amazing performer and she just begun her Revue, ‘Strip Strip Hooray’ at the Gramercy Theatre.
Though as far as I can find out the show is currently sold out, little wonder for a performer of this calibre and renown.
Von Teese has always made her mark by treading a fine line between art and pornography and always coming out triumphantly on the side of artful, glorious, open sexuality without sleeze.
With her you get a whole package not just her phenomenal throwback Jane Russel type looks but a whole 1940′s type sensibility.
Her clothes, her preoccupations, her routines all invoke a bygone era with the added twist of a 21st Century openness about sexual pleasure that has enabled her to almost single handedly bring back Burlesque as an art form.
She is touring this Revue around the country. If you miss out in NYC why don’t you think about travelling. LIKE great Burlesque.
