Dear Friends, Lovers and Everyone in Between, It's been awhile since we've dropped you a line and I apologize for the distance - we've just been knee deep in Empire Building! This past winter our Artistic Director, Miss RunAround Sue, was hired to not only portray the Burlesque Captain of a merry band of teasers in 1920s NYC but she also choreographed all the burlesque numbers in the film directed by James Gray and starring Jaoquin Phonix, Marion Cottilliard and Jeremy Renner. The film wrapped in early mid-March and we're now back in the saddle focusing on our TWO shows in Manhattan while still dedicated our selves to spreading the Burlesque Seed across the Nation!
