From Behind the pasties: This Week in Burlesque!

Burlesque happenings!

First off, if you missed Prime Time with the Blast Off Burlesque kids, then you missed out on QUITE a show!!! They really lived up to their recently bestowed title of best burlesque troupe in Atlanta, with their own saucy theme that had us all waxing nostalgic, from the hot hot fantasy come to life I Dream of Genie gettin' naked behind a scrim, to all the ladies in the audience drooling over Feris' House impersonation, while all the gents drooled over nurse Sadie on her Lyra, to the Big Underwear scene from Pee Wee's playhouse by Dicky Van Dyke. I have to tell you, Barbalicious' rendition of "See Alice" will be remembered for all time. The show was a mixed media extravaganza for the ages with video displays leading into full stage performances which seems to have become a Blast Off signature, and a personal favorite by this gal here!

Check out the photos already being posted here:
