Burlesque at Holt’s

High-end Canadian department store Holt Renfrew’s window displays are about to get risqué.  This Saturday (May 23, 2009) the front windows of the retailer’s Bloor Street flagship store will feature Holt’s own burlesque club with additional shows to follow on Saturday June 6 and Saturday June 20.  Live performers from the new club Jezebel will take to the stage and perform 4 shows for onlookers and passersby.

The performances are an attempt to celebrate the resurging art of burlesque (and the often curvy ladies who perform it) and to pay homage to burlesque dancers, old and new.

I’ll definitely be there, will you?

Update: Showtimes on Saturday May 23 are at 1:30pm, 2:15om and 3:00pm.

    That sounds like fun! Hopefully they will see fit to put on a show at the Sherbrooke Street location as well.
