ORLEANS SHOWROOM BURLESQUE SHOWCASE TWO
I believe I just saw a stage chicken named by Dirty Martini and Christopher Wonder. They decided the chicken should be called "Viva" in honor of their show run.

I am pretty honored to be allowed backstage for a story running along side this -
Audrey Deluxe is producing ten shows in four days. With help of course, but that backstage candid footage is going to be so fun! Stay tuned to this website for that.
Between the 2nd and 3rd burlesque showcase, Audrey informed me that she left the stage from the Showroom, went to do a 1 hour 15 min. burlesque bingo gig and returned in time for the curtain call. This is a sprint and a marathon for her. I'm truly amazed. The show went swimmingly.
The line-up for the Burlesque Showcase this year was truly stellar and world-class. The exotic performers and one male circus act (an exercise in magic and absurdity) was pretty mind-blowing. Not a lot of larger props were used, but the dancers who performed used every bit of the huge Orleans stage, and brought each a character not seen in the last. A merriment of ideas, art, beauty, flesh was met with enthusiastic audiences.
Roxi D'Lite (MI), Imodesty Blaze (UK), Cleo Viper (Italy), Peek-a-Boo Pointe and Gal Friday (NY), Angie Pontani (NY), Dirty Martini (NY), and I feel like I'm forgetting someone. Absolutely stunning imaginative acts were seen tonight. The stage boss was the Burlesque Bishop (NY), and he'll also manage the stage for the competition Saturday in the Showroom. Oh the amazing singing and joke-telling host Cora Vette.The link to all these wonderful people is here http://www.vivalasvegas.net/burlesque-showcase

Show two of three in a row Viva Las Vegas Burlesque Showcase is very under way. Detroits Roxi Dlite is up next, just saw Audrey Deluxe perform her 'Fembot' baton twirling act. So entertaining.
The car show is about half full of beautiful 1963 or pre, original cars. One of the hot rod drivers showed us some flames from his exhaust. He got those flames really spitting out. I ate a bomb pop while watching. George is out of Garden Grove, CA.
