Preview: Salty Lady Burlesque Brunch
The Salty Lady strikes again this weekend not once, but twice at Andy’s Bar on April 15 with Show Me the Money, Honey: A Fiscally Frisky Burlesque Brunch!
Show Me the Money is the third installation of burly brunches to come from the Salty Lady team, and the first to feature two opportunities to catch their drunkenly debaucherous, hilarious shows.
“Last show was pretty much sold out, “ said Producer Lilith Grey. “ If we tried to squeeze more folx in than before, it would be uncomfortable. People wouldn’t have room to eat, interact with the performers, or have as much fun.”
Andy’s, though a non-traditional venue for burlesque shows, has been an amazing secondary home to the burlesque community, specifically our favorite weekly variety show, Glitterbomb. So what makes this show different? Why catch a Salty Lady show when I can just wait until this Thursday?
“Glitterbomb is queer specific, a variety show, and showcases all levels and styles of performers, including entry level performers, “ said Grey who is also a co-producer of Glitterbomb. “Salty Lady Burlesque is burlesque specific, not a variety show and is not considered an entry level stage(though the shows occur on the same physical stage, they are held in different regards, so to speak - DL.) “
All entertainers involved are working professionals. The Salty Lady shows are meant to be comedic, including a stand-up comedian as a host and separate stand up segment, topped with an improvisational comedy game, called “Salty Jeopardy.”
Show Me the Money, Honey looks to be another opportunity to shake things up a bit in the local arts and entertainment scene.
VIP tickets are encouraged as they guarantee the best seat in the house, a complimentary mimosa or bloody mary, and opportunities to get up close and personal with the cast (and only touching with consent, y’all.)
