Warning: Today’s article is definitely NSFW. As if having “Burlesque” in the title wasn’t enough of an indicator, there will be pictures of scantily clad women ahead. Proceed at your own risk.
A few months ago, I wrote an article about a Burlesque show happening just a few steps away from Disneyland. Burlesqueland VI was a three-day extravaganza which featured tributes to some favorite Disney attractions and characters like the Jungle Cruise:
The Haunted Mansion:
Even Sorcerer Mickey:
Missed Burlesqueland in March? Not to worry, as the folks at Peepshow Menagerie are at it again with their third annual The Marvels of Burlesque show at the Fais Do Do in Los Angeles on Friday, June 20.
The show will feature tributes to some of Marvel’s most notable characters including Wolverine…
And many more. This year will also include Peepshow Menagerie’s first ‘BOYlesque’ performance from local performer Kirby LaBrea.
According to Chris Beyond, co-producer of The Marvels of Burlesque, “We are also happy to have performances from Mercury Troy, (as seen in the burlesque documentary “A Wink And A Smile”) who will be bringing an interpretation of a major fan favorite character and Estella Detroit (as featured on the AMC television show “Mad Men”) who will be bringing back her illuminating performance from last year.”
Chris continues, “Opening the show will be a musical performance from the UK’s own MAXI WILD and Patrick The Bank Robber will be hosting the show again as one of the most powerful ‘Secret’ characters there are.”
“It definitely has become one of our fan favorites and as fans ourselves of the subject matter, we always strive to put on the best show possible for our fellow fans in the audience.”
Interested in covering the event for Theme Park University? I am looking for a photographer who can take some pictures and give me a brief rundown of the event. If you are going to be in the Los Angeles area on June 20 and interested, please contact me at JoshYoung@ThemeParkUniversity.com!
