Burlesque Directory

A lot of people have never heard of “burlesque” as a form of art and entertainment. By creating a curated burlesque directory of intriguing Burlesque Shows, Burlesque Troupes, Burlesque Supper Clubs, Burlesque Events, Burlesque Productions, and Burlesque Performers, the diversity of the industry can begin to be understood. This isn’t to be a comprehensive list of the Burlesque Industry, as there are numerous websites and even niche burlesque directories that already exist. However, if your aesthetic matches, “Shay Au Lait’s Speakeasy,” this directory may excite you.
