Don’t be shy. You know you’ve always wanted to try it. What better time than now? These five performances are the best burlesque in NYC:
1. Le Scandal Cabaret
This is the longest running burlesque show in NYC. It features a full live band and a variety of performers, including a contortionist, a magician, a sword-swallowing belly dancer, and many sultry vixens. And you can get 20 percent off your tickets if you download and purchase them on the Fever app.
2. Dead Sexy Cabaret
We’re already getting in a Halloween mood with this cabaret show. There will be sexy goblins, sexy zombies, and everyone’s favorite: sexy vampires. If you buy your tickets on Fever, you get $7 off, and a free drink. Not a bad deal.
3. Shanghai Gesture Turns Burlesque
A new spin on burlesque: inspired by Chinese culture. It’s produced by Calamity Chang, also known as NYC’s “Asian Sexsation.” She’s brought her show to a Village speakeasy, where you’ll sip baijou, or Chinese liquor, while you enjoy the performance.
4. Tainted Cabaret
Tainted Cabaret is a neo-burlesque cabaret show where sex, camp and the absurd meet. It features a rotating cast of NYC’s neo-burlesque and boylesque stars. As an added bonus, you can enjoy $5 Coney Island Drafts during the show.
5.Room 69 at Hotel Chantelle
This show is great and it’s free! It happens every Friday and features a dedicated all-star cast. Be sure you get there early to get a seat!
