Chicago’s hottest live band burlesque show is back!
Vaudezilla invites you to some old-school cabaret as we bring you burlesque and variety acts all scored to the live music of our new house band, The Red Hot Qaurtet! This month, we welcome guest performers Brittny Congleton & Megan Captaine, Ian Abramson, Lilly Rascal, Gil T Dubs, Angela Vela, and Sadie O’Swirl & Zipper McKenzie. Whether you’re looking for some laughs, some music, or just some good old shimmy-shakin’ burlesque, Vaudezilla shows always have something for everyone.
And this month, you can see our patented Russian Roulette Burlesque! The performer comes out, picks a song out of a hat, the band plays, and no one knows what will happen after that. You have to see it to believe it.
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Vaudezilla show without all your favorite performers. This time around, you’ll be dazzled and delighted by the likes of Raven Gemini, Po’ Chop, Vanna Tease, our Vaudezilla Vixens, Mister Junior, Dirty Devlin, Trixie Sparx, and the First Lady herself – Red Hot Annie!
There may be a lot of burlesque in Chicago, but there’s only one Vaudezilla!
For the past five years, The Great Burlesque Exposition has hosted one of the largest and most informative displays of burlesque costuming in the United States. The difficult part has always been seeing the exhibit; since it was only set up as part of the annual 3-day event, like a shooting star it was there and then gone. Many burlesque fans and scholars wanted more time with the costumes – and a larger exhibit.
We're pleased to partner with The West End Museum of Boston. The museum is delighted to host an expanded version of our costume exhibit for a month, beginning a few days after The Great Burlesque Exposition. From April 10, 2012 through May 12, 2012 the costumes will be on display in an appropriate location: a museum dedicated to the Boston neighborhood which encompassed Scollay Square, Boston's original burlesque district.
