Entertainers Bare All at the 7th Annual Show Me Burlesque Festival


No matter where you're from, burlesque is a language you can understand. The 7th Annual Show Me Burlesque and Vaudeville Festival opened Thursday night at the Ivory Theater, and RFT was there to capture the spectacle.

Featuring performers from around the world, the show wowed the audience with song, dance and, yes, minimal clothing. And good news -- the festival continues this Friday and Saturday! Catch the Spectaculaire Friday at 9 p.m. at the Casa Loma Ballroom, and then head to 2720 Cherokee for the Red Light Revue at the Van Ella Bordella on Saturday at 8 p.m. You're sure to be calling for an encore.
