Hawai‘i Burlesque Festival & Revue
Friday, Sept. 14 and Saturday, Sept. 15, at 6 p.m.
The Hawai‘i Burlesque Festival & Revue celebrates seven years of glitzy, glamorous, scintillating fun. Featured burlesque superstar Bunny Pistol leads a cast of international, national and local cabaret talents in two back-to-back nights of shows, each featuring its own theme and cast. On Friday, The TwinNight Show showcases a variety of talents in a performance that’s equal parts hilarious, sexy and unconventional (and maybe just a tad inappropriate). On Saturday, come dressed in your best jammies to Super Fun Slumber Party at Camp BurlyQ!, where performers will shake things up with campy moves, crazy games and riveting campfire tales. Both performances follow a cocktail reception and pre-show entertainment. Parents, leave the little ones at home—these shows are meant for your eyes only.
$40–$95, Honolulu Museum of Art Doris Duke Theatre, 901 Kīnaʻu St. For more information and to purchase tickets, go here.
