Septmember in the Sugar Shack

September in the Sugar Shack:

Jumping into an Autumn of High Spirited Night Life

As we shimmy out of the steamy months of Summer, we are excited to be jumping into to an autumn full of high spirited night life. Thank you to all of you who made it out to our summer series in Montauk at Sole East (keep your eyes set on Sole Miami where we may be shimmying down to this winter!), our debut in London (where we will be returning in March of 2011!) and of course our weekly dance party, Shaken and Stirred at the Delancey (still going strong every Wednesday night!). For those of you who haven’t seen it yet; be sure to take a minute to read all about Miss RunAround Sue in the New York Observer:

Also, while you’re surfing the web – take a look at our newly updated website (Special thanks to Lady J from Anti-Mag for keeping all our ducks in a row):

And now! On with the Shows! In addition to our weekly/monthly adventures we are excited to announce the start of a brand new party: SUNDAYS-A-GO-GO. Once a month Sugar Shack Burlesque and DJ Bridget will transform the upstairs Lounge at Piano’s in a decadent and lush den of Bollywood, Early Dee-Light, and 60s dance tunes with burlesque performances on the hour – and September 19th marks the very first night – but, let’s not get ahead of starts… Let’s start at the very beginning (a very good place to start)..

The Hottest most Lustful Month: August in the Sugar Shack!

Hello dear ones,

We are happy to report that Sugar Shack Burlesque's first show in London was a huge success! Time Out London listed the show as a critic's choice and heralded Sugar Shack as the "renowned New York Troupe with a sizeable reputation.. for mixing old-school charms with new confrontational twists." We're already set to go back in March 2011 and plan to include an additional show in Berlin. Thank you to all our fans for encouraging us to become an International Burlesque production company!

In addition to our travels overseas, RunAround Sue and Scooter Pie are still bringing you the most diverse wednesday nights around every week at the Delancey. We've also begun a partnership with American Shapewear lingerie and are cooking up all kinds of special surprises for you in the months to come.

For now, treat yourself to something special and come on down to the Sugar Shack!
