Burlesque and Nightlife Directory
Interested in attending a local burlesque show in your city?
Burlesque is historically considered a parody of culture, a literary genre, a sister of theater, and a fun form of variety entertainment. Read more at, “What is Burlesque?”, “Why Do People Take Burlesque Classes?“, and “The Best Burlesque Websites.”
By curating a 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.
Also note, this directory includes burlesque, pole dance, drag, sideshow, theatre, circus, BDSM & Kink, and many other forms of nightlife events and productions specifically curated by Switchress Shay AuLait.
Noveltease Theatre produces contemporary burlesque plays, blending neo-burlesque styling with the theatrical roots of burlesque theatre in the 1880s. Through a combination of text and dance, we seek to embody literature and create shared community around storytelling. We stage unique burlesque adaptations of classic works of theatre and literature in order to reclaim and rework the canon from a sex-positive, queer, feminist, and anti-racist standpoint that enlivens and transforms classic works for contemporary audiences.
