Dita Von Teese’s Strip Strip Hooray!
The biggest name in burlesque since Gypsy Rose Lee, Dita Von Teese will bring her “Burlesque: Strip, Strip Hooray!” variety show to Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago this summer, it was announced by Kelly Kapp, Vice President, Live Nation.
“Dita Von Teese is an iconic international superstar,” said Kapp. “With her innovative style and unique talent, Dita has paved the way for all women to feel sexy, no matter their shape or size. Her electric shows bring together fans of every age group and walk of life, from fashionistas to older couples on a ‘date night’ to the gay and lesbian communities. The atmosphere at her performances, coupled with the fantasy and spectacle of the performances themselves, creates a dynamic live entertainment experience.”
The 90-minute spectacle treats audiences to four of Von Teese’s most impressive performances, including her new Swarovski Martini Glass act which she calls her “ultimate, most decadent, and dazzling martini glass ever!” This beautiful art-deco style cocktail glass is crystalized from top to bottom and features over 250,000 Swarovski crystals. Also featured in the revue is Von Teese's lavish "Opium Den" show which features her as a smoldering and exotic dragon lady, resplendent in a trailing Swarovski crystal Cheongsam embellished with long gleaming crystal tassels.
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."
Joining burlesque’s brightest star 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, Selene Luna, Monsieur Romeo, Lada Nikolska of the Crazy Horse Paris, and America's Got Talent finalist Prince Poppycock.
“It is a great pleasure for me to bring a cast of crème de la crème of modern burlesque all together for my full length revue ‘Strip, Strip Hooray!’,” Von Teese said. "I am especially delighted to perform in Chicago, one of my favorite cities in the United States. I've never performed any of my full-scale shows in Chicago, but this time, I'm presenting all of my most extravagant acts, along with a show-stopping support cast, for an unforgettable night of sophisticated striptease and riotous comedy. Don't miss us in ‘Burlesque: Strip Strip Hooray!’”
