St. Louis Burlesque Performers to Take Show to London


This just in from Lola van Ella, she of the pasties and feather boas. Next month van Ella and two other homegrown St. Louis burlesque performers -- Sturdy Gurlesque and Tomahawk Tassels -- will be headed to England to perform at the London Burlesque Festival.

The trio from St. Louis are among just nine Americans chosen to attend the event. Later this month -- March 28 -- they're having a party at the Koken Art Factory to celebrate and help raise money for their trip across the pond.

More on that soiree as it becomes available.
