The happiest place on earth meets the naughtiest show on earth as Peepshow Menagerie presents a weekend sextravaganza of “Dizney”-inspired dance and decadence. It’s the seven-year anniversary of the popular “Burlesqueland” theme show, and Peepshow promises plenty of Mickey-esque madness, cheeky/geeky revelry, guest stars, comedy and more.
At Friday’s opener, held at Fais Do-Do, performers will include Scarlett Letter, Penny Starr Jr., Panama Red, Sheila Starr Siani and many more, conjuring childhood cartoon characters and theme park memories in striptease skits that are definitely not for the kids.
On Saturday, the celebration moves to Silver Lake’s Moving Arts, as Peepshow presents “Naked Show & Tell,” a burlesque-meets–talk show event featuring discussion about princesses, mice, movies and park rides, plus exclusive-to-Saturday burlesque routines.
For night three (Sunday), performers and fans will gather informally at the ’Land itself, or just outside of it, at Trader Sam’s Enchanted Tiki Bar at the Disneyland Hotel, for one last ball filled with Dis-minded drinks and dames.
Weekend passes available for $25. More info at burlesqueland.com.
