Fire & Fury Burlesque at City Winery, NYC

Each month, The City Winery in New York City showcases “Fire & Fury Burlesque” a different kind of art, the art of burlesque. This month featured established burlesque performers from throughout the country never seen before on the same stage: Minxie Mimiuex (Dallas, TX); Velvetina Taylor (Memphis, TN); Ava Lure, (Toronto, Canada); Elle Dorado, (New Orleans, LA); Autumn Leaves, (Nashville, TN); Delilah Dubois, (Dallas, TX); Dottie Dynamo (Everywhere); Margo Mahem; Samson Night; Nip Fury; Rex Halligan. From the moment of the first drop of a purple satin glove, the audience was “glued” to the performers’ “tasteful teases” and became engrossed in the eye-catching lingerie and bejeweled headdresses.The hoot’in and hollering continued all night long as the audience got more than their share of hip bumping, pasty twirling and butt slapping.  Everyone had a good time.
