Rebel Without a Bra: A Burlesque Cabaret introduces us to the history of women in burlesque and lays bare the tired tropes of burlesque history with cheeky comedic scenes.
Join us for an enticing experience combining theater, cabaret, and burlesque in this unique and sensual evening of entertainment. Learn about women in burlesque history through the eyes, ears, and reminisces of some of its most fascinating participants. From the sultry stage presence of Victorian lovelies in tights, to the French cancan, through the classical age of burlesque beauties, to the current neo-burlesque genre, you will leave wanting more. This theatrical experience strips away the performer’s inhibitions (and yours) at this year’s annual Rogue Festival.
SF Gate called it “A fleshy offering… celebrating the female body in various shapes and sizes.” “A loose look at burlesque history – with nods to Josephine Baker, Isadora Duncan, and Mae West.”
