Dita Von Teese “Burlesque: Strip Strip Hooray!” Final U.S. Tour Dates
The 90-minute spectacle "Burlesque: Strip Strip Hooray!" treats audiences to four of Von Teese’s most impressive performances, including her "Bird of Paradise" show which was just added to the line-up. This number features Von Teese perched inside a posh gilded Victorian birdcage in an extraordinary costume of beautifully curved fuchsia feathers. Also showcased in the revue are Von Teese's Swarovski Martini Glass act which she calls her "ultimate, most decadent, and dazzling martini glass ever!" This number features Von Teese in a haute couture tuxedo by Alexis Mabille, which she strips out of to reveal a custom-made corset by the world renowned Mr. Pearl. The act culminates with her bathing in a beautiful art-deco style cocktail glass, crystallized from top to bottom with over 250,000 Swarovski crystals. Fans will also see Von Teese's "Rhinestone Cowgirl" show which has her dressed to ride in head to toe pink Swarovski crystal, twirling sparkling guns, with her custom Christian Louboutin "Lou-BOOT-ins" complete with glistening spurs a spinnin'. Her lavish "Opium Den" show is the ultimate finale with Von Teese as a smoldering and exotic dragon lady, resplendent in a trailing Swarovski crystal Cheongsam embellished with long gleaming crystal tassels.
Joining her on stage will be “the hardest working middle-aged man in show business,” MC Murray Hill, along with a who’s who of burlesque, including Dirty Martini, Catherine D'lish, Perle Noire, Selene Luna, Monsieur Romeo, and Lada Nikolska of the Crazy Horse Paris who will perform the iconic Parisian cabaret's act “leçon d'érotisme.”
"Burlesque: Strip Strip Hooray!" has appeared in Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Chicago, Dallas, Ft. Lauderdale, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Ana, and Seattle, with the final U.S. tour dates this Fall in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and New York.
The Los Angeles Times says, "Her attention to detail and embellished glitz onstage is unparalleled, even for pop stars. From the sparkle of each and every Swarovski crystal (hundreds of thousands swathe pretty much every prop and article of clothing in the production) to the sensual lighting that caresses her slender porcelain frame to the vampy music that sets the mood for the procession of themed vignettes - your eye cannot turn away from the utter flawlessness of it all."
