August 1st - Sugar Shack Burlesque heads North, Club Hesinki - Great Barrington, MA
8pm & 10:30, $15 www.clubhelsinkiweb.com
If you don't know about Sugar Shack Burlesque yet, you just haven't been paying attention. For over a year now, Legs Malone and Runaround Sue have been bringing their cutting edge, retro based, neo-burlesque show to a growing base of fans in Great Barrington and beyond. Those audiences have been treated to one of the finest strip tease, side show comedy acts to ever come out of New York City. They have seen beautiful ladies, hilarious comedians, sword swallowers, Miss Coney Island, contortionists, a human carasoul, a man hammering a nail into his own face, New York's premier wonder woman impersonator, and amazing things done with props from water balloons to jelly donuts. We never know what they are going to do next. This edition of the show is sponsored by Great Barrington Bra & Girl. It will feature a mini fashion show and product giveaways from Great Barrington's new full service bra and lingerie shop.
