Heavy Loaded Fruit Trees
Burlesque is the flaming phoenix of American theater traditions; the alcoholic-fueled free-for-all was effectively extinguished by Prohibition (damn those teetotalers and their fake middle class morality). But burlesque rose from the ashes with help from garter-strapped performers like Dita von Teese (Marilyn Manson's ex-wife), who sexily sashays the fine line between titillating and profane. Experience modern burlesque--with a twist--at Noir Boudoir. The "killingest (drag) queen" herself, Ms. Nikki Trash, hosts the burlesque and drag show featuring 12 performers. Get ready to be teased and pleased--if you're 18 and older, that is. Noir Boudoir kicks off 7 p.m. Thursday at Trees, 2709 Elm St. Tickets are $20. Visit treesdallas.com.
