Exotic World and The Burlesque Revival on the big screen. Cupcakes & Apple Pie in Seattle.

Be a part of history- 10 days left!

Everyone who attended the Burlesque Hall of Fame 2011 came away with a very important film fixation: Exotic World and the Burlesque Revival. Anyone who has made the pilgrimage to the annual Vegas gathering ever can attest to the power of the museum as a tool to not only preserve history, but to make it: Dixie Evans and before her, Jennie Lee, threw the doors wide open for legions of performers to follow in their footsteps, and find each other.

This movie is important to the international burlesque community in so many ways, and only 10 days remain in the campaign to help fund the project’s finishing costs (mastering, archival footage, music licensing, and color correction). Read more about the film HERE– and please, for the love of all that is dazzling, donate!
