Hosts: Gilgamesh Taggett & Mizter Scrach (Boston, MA)
Primarily seated, general admission
This weekend, celebrate the swinging golden era of burlesque's song, skin, and sin with the 3rd Annual International Ohio Burlesque Festival. The goal of the Ohio Burlesque festival isn't simply to get burlesque artists and fans throughout the world to celebrate this age-old form of performance, but also to share the history of burlesque in our state. The old Roxy Theatre -- once a Downtown watering hole for mobsters, politicians, musicians, and other ne'er-do-wells -- is the historical focus of the Burlesque Festival. But it's this weekend's roster of performers that will be the real focus. Taking the stage on Friday will be East Coasters The Boston Babydolls, Texas knockout Donna Denise, and other performers such as MCs Gilagmesh Taggett and Mizter Scratch. Come celebrate the glamorous and sensual pageantry that is classic burlesque!
