Get ready New York burlesque fans! In a little more than three weeks, your fine city will host four days of world-class burlesque performance at the 10th Annual New York Burlesque Festival. This festival is considered to be one of the top five festivals in the world for burlesque and the list of performers is veritable who’s who of the neo-burlesque and boylesque scenes: Dirty Martini, Angie Pontani, Trixie Little and the Evil Hate Monkey, Jo Boobs Weldon, Miss Mina Murray, Jonny Porkpie, Tigger! and many, many more.
We are incredibly honored that such an incredible festival chose to use Brown Paper Tickets for their four-day passes this year. You can pick yours up right over here and I advise you get yours quick because they won’t be around for much longer. Trust me. You don’t want to miss this.
We got a chance to sit down with the festival’s co-founder Jen Gapay (pictured above) of Thirsty Girl Productions to talk a little about the history of the festival, what they got planned for their 10 year anniversary, the rise of boylesque and more.
So, ladies and gentlemen, without further ado, Miss Jen Gapay!
