The Queen of Burlesque winds down her final round of U.S. tour dates with her trademark sexy, sassy show in the heart of Hollywood. At a young age, when she was still Heather Renée Sweet, Dita Von Teese fell in love with vintage glamour, a passion that has fueled her successful career as the stunning siren behind the enduring international burlesque revival. From her feathered “Bird of Paradise” intro all the way through to her sultry “Opium Den” finale, Von Teese keeps our interest piqued with her tight corsets, tasseled pasties and supporting cast of variety-show vixens and musicians reminiscent of the golden age of entertainment. Whether she's splashing around in a giant, Swarovski-encrusted martini glass or kicking up her Christian Louboutins and spinning spurs in her “Rhinestone Cowgirl” number, in Burlesque: Strip Strip Hooray, Von Teese delivers a visually striking performance that's a tribute to the creative striptease acts of yesteryear as well as a dazzling, contemporary display unlike any other burlesque shows today.
