The art forms of burlesque and escape artistry will be resurrected when Julie Atlas Muz performs both on the New York ferryboat "Yankee" (docked at Pier 25 at Laight St.) for a one-night only performance, Sink or Swim on July 21. The event, to be presented by the award-winning performance art venue Dixon Place, will include a magician, a strip-tease artist, opera singers, musicians, dancers, and comics. Sink or Swim will also mark the return (following an 11-year retirement) of performance artist, David Leslie.
Tickets for the event are available for $40, and can be reserved by calling (212) 219-3088.
