Show Me Burlesque 

When: May 17-18, 7:30 p.m. 2018
Price: $10-$125
Lola Van Ella's Show Me Burlesque Festival has grown over the course of nine years to an incredible size. Four different shows spread over three nights are required to accommodate the performers who represent the best of the burlesque, neo-burlesque, cabaret, modern vaudeville and circus scenes. New York's Nasty Canasta and San Francisco's Alotta Boutte are the headliners, and scores of other performers will take the stage throughout the festival as well. Performances are at 7:30 and 10 p.m. Thursday, 7:30 p.m. Friday (May 17 and 18) at 2720 Cherokee Performing Arts Center (2720 Cherokee Street) and 9 p.m. Saturday, May 19, at the Casa Loma Ballroom (3354 Iowa Avenue). Friday night's show is the Red Light Revue and includes entrance to the Van Ella Bordella after-party at 10:30 p.m., which combines a speakeasy with a Weimar-era German cabaret. The waitresses are surly, the band's version of jazz is sleazy and the entertainment is better seen than described. Tickets are $10 to $125 depending on the performances you pick.
