"Audiences bored with vanilla strip tease will not be disappointed...If you like burlesque and you're not boring, check out a queer show. It's funnier, dirtier, and the main course is still mams and gams!"

-Ray's Guide to Chicago Area BurlesqueFOR THE STRAIGHTS:
"One note about queer burlesque for the straight and uninitiated: the acts may sometimes have feminist overtones, but they still consist of sexy women (sometimes more than one!) taking their clothes off and should be anticipated more than feared."-Ray's Guide to Chicago Area Burlesque
