Corsets and tassels and feathers, oh my! The warm season reaches a boiling point when the Vermont Burlesque Festival raises the curtain on its Hot Summer Showcase at Burlington’s ArtsRiot. Following two dazzling performances at the Orleans County Fair on Thursday and Friday, a luscious lineup of performers serves up its series finale, titled “A Mid Summer’s Tease.” Luke Warm of Las Vegas hosts this eye-catching burlesque and variety show featuring the tantalizing talents of Montpelier’s Bea Trouble, the Green Mountain Cabaret’s Sugar Shakers and headliner Scarlett James of Montréal (pictured), among others. Sorry kids, strong language and partial nudity mean this event is for folks ages 18 and up.
Price: $20-25; for ages 18 and up.
