Friday, June 2, 2017 – 60th Annual Titans of Tease Showcase

We are thrilled to reveal the lineup for the 60th annual Titans of Tease Burlesque Reunion Showcase! The heart-and-soul of The Burlesque Hall of Fame, this star-studded and crystal-encrusted blow-out stars legendary stripteasers from the Golden Era of burlesque through the 1970s.

An ode to vintage-style striptease in all its risque glory, the Reunion Showcase has its roots in the annual gatherings of dancers held by Exotic Dancers League (EDL), and Burlesque Hall of Fame, founder Jennie Lee, beginning in 1957–a tradition we’re honored to uphold–in the form of a living, breathing, bump-and-grinding testament to burlesque “as it was.”
