Thu 8/3-Sat 8/5
Returning to the Beachland Ballroom for its 7th year, the Ohio Burlesque Festival boasted more performers — nearly 70 – and more variety in the performers and their acts The amazing three nights of entertainment included humor, glamor, horror, sci-fi, dance, singing, hula hooping, drag queens, an ensemble act by Columbus’ Crimson Lace Cabaret “boylesque,” and even a jaw-dropping act involving flame by Australia’s Leopard Lass. Tassels, feather fans and boas flew, and emcees Veranda L’Ni and Ken Schneck kept the audience primed with their quick wit. Performers came from all across the country and many hung out for the whole festival, networking, making new friends and generally being impressed with Cleveland’s hospitality.
