Those glamorous glitter-and-rhinestone-bedazzled burlesque performers are really pop-culture nerds, did you know that?
Well, if you didn’t, you’ve probably never been to Star Wars Burlesque at the Beachland Ballroom, hosted by the Ohio Burlesque Festival and Cleveland’s longest-running burlesque troupe Le Femme Mystique. See all your favorite performers, and some new ones as well, based their acts around characters from the film series — and doing a damned good impression of the characters, before adding bits those characters never thought of!
Performers include Le Femme Mystique/Ohio Burlesque Festival founder Bella Sin, Cece Noir, Noella Deville, Scarlett Chaton, Deva Diamond, Bee Awkward, Kimmy Katarja, Miss Holly Grail, Poppy Poison, Rubi-Nesque, and recent graduate of the Cleveland Burlesque Academy Robyn Emblynde.
Sponsors include the Maria Neil Art Project, In The 216, Oh Fuudge, Nicoco Creations, Retro Rosie, Dirty Girl Soap Co and Glamored Edge Beauty. Reserved seats are sold out, but you can buy general admission — $17 in advance, $20 at the doors. We’d suggest not waiting because this show is popular!
