To look at a photograph - any photograph - of burlesque legend Dita Von Tease, one can imagine her sashaying into the moonlight, and in slow motion, no less. But to see Von Tease in the flesh is even more magical and enthralling.
In addition to her burlesque dancing, Dita Von Tease is a model, costume designer, entrepreneur and actress, so it's important to catch her live shows when she does come to town.
Next week, April 7 and 8, Von Tease will bring her "Burlesque: Strip Strip Hooray!" Variety Show to NOLA's House of Blues. The 90-minute show will include her "Bird of Paradise" number featuring Von Teese perched inside a Victorian birdcage, her famous Swarovski Martini Glass act, and much more.
Doors open at 7:30 P.M. for both 18+ shows, and tickets are still available but are going fast.
