New York City residents and visitors alike can enjoy the Coney Island Burlesque on the Beach. This event is held on Thursday and Friday evenings beginning May 5, 2011, and going through September 30, 2011. Programs begin at 9:00 PM on Thursdays, and 10:00 PM on Fridays. Admission is $12 on Thursdays and $15 on Fridays.
Get ready to enjoy such events as the popular America's Favorite Burlesque Game show - This or That! The show uses audience members, and turns them into stars, so don't be surprised if you are really a part of the show.
Also get ready to laugh as you watch Bambi the Mermaid poke not-so-gentle fun at child beauty pageants (that's on July 29th) and "BEEF CURTAINS-the musical" on August 19.
Parents need to remember that burlesque entertainment can get rather risqué, so you will have to decide if this is something you want your children to see. You might want to see if you can arrange child care, and make it an "adults only" night.
