Performances of the evening, described as a "lightning-in-a-bottle survey of American burlesque, with Lemley leading a tight-knit coterie of showgirls through heart-racing choreography, in eye-popping costumes," are scheduled for Feb. 5-8 at 8 PM. Lemley will be backed by a live band under the music direction of Dan Micciche. The celebration of American burlesque from a century ago to now also features the choreography of David Eggers and Merete Muenter, the costumes of Wendall Goings and the orchestrations of Steve Rawlins. The show’s directing consultant is Tony winner Joe Hardy.
Lemley and her cast, according to press notes, "gracefully fan through 19 songs and numbers, all of which touch on the art, deception and humor of striptease seduction."
