The shining stars of Chicago burlesque have come together to raise funds for the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend Legends Challenge, an international fundraising drive to bring the stars of burlesque's heyday - the Living Legends - to the 2013 Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend in Las Vegas (May 30 - Jun 2).
The "BHOF Weekender" is a unique entertainment and competition event, bringing together the theatricality of neo-burlesque performance and the charm of classic striptease. Nightly showcases feature today's top burlesque performers - female and male, up and comers, and these "Living Legends." These "Living Legends" range in age from 60s through 90s and many lack the funds to travel to Las Vegas for the annual event. The Legends Challenge helps bring these performers to the event where they participate in panel discussions, teach classes, and even perform!
Please help us preserve the history of an important modern art form and support the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekend Legends Challenge! For the auspicious occasion, we've assembled an all-star lineup of talent, starring Vaudezilla's own Red Hot Annie, Trixie Sparx, Po'Chop, Mister Junior, Vanna Tease, and Lilly Rascal.
Also appearing are Lulu Loose, Sadie O'Swirl & Zipper McKenzie, Brittny Congleton, Tara Racktyl, Sophia Bliss, Ian Abramson, Millie May, Billie B, Lovie Long Time and more. Special appearances from opera burlesque company Lingerie Lyrique and puppetry from Chez Bouche.
