    This is Burlesque brings it’s vivacious and bawdy show up to Midtown after a year run tucked away in the speak-easy’s of Downtown Manhattan. This is Burlesque is an uproarious evening, with bodacious beauties and sultry singers taking center stage. Set to swingin’ music, the show features performances by legendary host and renowned comedian Murray Hill, the Italian Stallionette, reigning Miss Cyclone and Miss Exotic World 2008 Angie Pontani, the tapping tornado Helen Pontani,the delinquent darling of burlesque and fastest tassel twirler from east to west Peekaboo Pointe, The World Famous Pontani Sisters and the divine songstress Melody Sweets, with special guest appearances by other downtown favorites and stars of the burlesque scene. This is Burlesque is a throw back to the boozy speak-easy nights of Tin Pan Alley and vaudeville, while paying homage to the magic and roots to the kind of burlesque only found in NYC. http://www.hostgatorreviews.org calls it ” A raucous evening of high-kicking and tassel twirling, first rate!”
