Jessica Price, Editor/Writer (Seattle)

Driven by a burning desire to document and shed some light on Seattle’s incredible burlesque universe, I launched Burlesque Seattle Press as a way to air my obsession publicly. As a freelance writer, I realized that burlesque was sneaking more and more into my assignments and I needed an outlet for all the random bits and pieces.

Madonna- and years later, Bettie Page- were the gateway drugs that naturally, became a preoccupation with dynamic female entertainers and all things burlesque. This site – covering Seattle and our Northwestern sister cities whenever possible – is dedicated to everyone that has ever thrilled a crowd onstage, with a special big kiss to Seattle-based performers and their far-flung, adopted families.

I got into burlesque pretty much after my first show. It was an Academy of Burlesque Recital at The Rendezvous, January 2005. My friend Ruby Caliente was performing (she only performed a few times) and asked me to take photos of her routine. The show was sexy, dirty, provocative, funny and titillating. I was hooked. 50,000 thousand photos and 9 years later, I’m ensconced in the world of burlesque and loving every minute of it.

Crystal Tassels, Contributing Writer (Seattle)

Crystal Tassels, Seattle’s Bubbliest Babe, made her burlesque debut while living in South Korea as a member of what was, at the time, the country’s only burlesque troupe. Since sashaying back across the pond, the jetsetter brought her highly energetic teasing to the American stage and was graciously ushered into the world of Seattle burlesque. Miss Tassels offers an inside look at the glitz and glamour of the ecdysiast universe.
