The Burlesque Hall of Fame is proud to present its Independence Day weekend show Liber-TEASE! In partnership with Ron Decar’s Event Center, the show will feature top burlesque performers from Las Vegas and beyond, including the 2018 Miss Exotic World Runner-up Jessebelle Thunder, performing alongside legends of the classic burlesque era, Tiffany Carter and Gina BonBon.
“Burlesque has always been a celebration of our liberties,” says BHoF Executive Director Dustin M. Wax. “Since its earliest days, burlesque has pushed the limits of freedom of speech, freedom of artistic expression, freedom to do with one’s body as one wishes. What better way to celebrate our Independence Day than with a burlesque show?”
