Philadelphia, PA - Franky Bradley’s, the eccentric restaurant and bar proudly located in the Gayborhood of Philadelphia, is kicking off 2020s La Maison Rose, a monthly burlesque show series, with “We Need a Hero! A Burlesque Tribute to the ’80s" this Thursday, January 16, featuring a line-up of some of Philly’s best burlesque performers.
La Maison Rose honors the strongest and sexist elements of burlesque’s past while adding to its continued future by drawing on a host of both veteran and up-and-coming performers who push the boundaries and definitions of the form itself. Shows are the third Thursday of every month. Doors open at 9:30 pm and shows start at 10 pm.
La Maison Rose is headlined by the University of the Arts graduate and West Philly’s own Lelu Lenore, who is hailed as the Burlesque Ballerina of Philadelphia and has won international awards for her art. In each performance, Lenore is joined by Artist-in-Residence Renée Rebelle, veteran kitten Veronica Vicious, and chanteuse hostess Alyson Rodriguez Orenstein.
In a tribute to the ‘80s, the kick-off performance “We Need a Hero!” stars burlesque performers including Renée Rebelle, Goldi Fox, Fagl Roq, Ginger Leigh, Teddy Fatscher, Lola Von Rox, and Krix Rox.
Tickets cost $20 for general admission and $30 for VIP and can be purchased here or at the door.
