St. Louis Steps Up to the Mounds

As if the tasseled breasts, acrobatics and flashes of sensual skin aren’t enough, Viva Dallas Burlesque performs Beggar’s Carnivale! with a vaudeville twist. The event features top burlesque dancers from St. Louis in an act that blends slapstick theatrical style with graceful aerial maneuvers from infamous burlesque dancers of the Midwest. Sammich the Tramp and Jeez Louise are among the scantily clad troupe that walks the fine line between the comedy of vaudeville and the craft of burlesque. The show begins at 8 p.m. at the Lakewood Theater, 1825 Abrams Road. Ticket prices are $20 for general admission. For $125, a VIP table for four can be reserved.
