International performers and burlesque darlings of NYC, Bunny Love and RunAround Sue are missing their southern roots. With a few costumes, a handful of pasties, a bit of glitter, two guitars and a uke these two burlqy babes are hitting the road and joining forces with the South’s' most sizzling shows to spread the burlesque love.

Sharing the stage with them are Tiger Roxx and Jenn Martin who regularly heat up Greensboro with their troupe, Purrlesque Burlesque and Asheville’s very own burlesque and aerial star Lucille Castille. Burlesque is the art of the striptease, with a focus on the tease. This show is a revival of an American art form that has become an international movement.

Sugar Shack Burlesque is tickled pink to be making their debut at the legendary Stephen’s Talkhouse on May 28th. Although no stranger to the Hamptons, Sugar Shack Burlesque produces a lively vaudeville revue every summer at Sole East in Montauk. For the first show at Stephen’s Talkhouse, Sugar Shack Burlesque is bringing together the charm of Russia’s most darling contortionist, Ekaterina, the allure of the Big Apples blondest bombshell, Ruby Valentine, the international “make it happen girl”, RunAround Sue and the Sweetheart of the Sideshow, The Lady Aye.

A show not to be missed, full of old school glamour, modern high jinks, sword swallowing, contortionists, fan dancers and more tricks and charms to steal your heart. Join us as we modernize the bumps and grinds while maintaining the cheeky demureness of the golden age of burlesque.

Called the "... renowned New York troupe, with a sizeable reputation on the city's pioneering neo-burlesque scene for mixing old-school charms with new confrontational twists" by TimeOut London; Sugar Shack Burlesque is now in its fourth year of providing unstoppable heart racing entertainment to the Hamptons. Don’t miss your chance to see this international troupe in action. For tickets, visit Stephen Talkhouse online at or call 631-267-3117.
