This is Burlesque Celebrates 100th Performance

This is BurlesqueCorio's dazzling weekly revue "This is Burlesque" celebrated its 100th performance on Friday, June 13! The milestone 100th performance was celebrated all weekend long with debut new numbers and complimentary P.I.N.K. Pastie Cocktails at intermission.

With a nod to the speak-easy era, downtown "King of Comedy" Murray Hill, neo-burlesque star Angie Pontani, The World Famous Pontani Sisters and others deliver a stage show like no other in an intimate lounge atmosphere – creating a total New York nightlife experience. Performances began October 11, 2007 and the show has been drawing capacity crowds ever since.

"This is Burlesque" is an uproarious and racy evening, with bodacious beauties and sultry singers taking center stage. Set to swingin' music, the show features performances by legendary host and renowned comedian Murray Hill, the Italian Stallionette and reigning Miss Cyclone Angie Pontani, the tapping tornado Helen Pontani, the delinquent darling of burlesque and the fastest tassel twirler from east to west Peekaboo Pointe, The World Famous Pontani Sisters and the divine songstress Melody Sweets, with frequent guest appearances by fabulous downtown favorites. With the laughs flying as fast as the tassels – it's never the same show twice!

Corio offers an upscale, intimate setting that is also comfortable and fun – where guests aren't hassled with velvet ropes or pretentious policies. This venue delivers something vital and new: a total nightlife experience where audiences can revel in the atmosphere and be dazzled by the show.

This is Burlesque is written by Murray Hill & Angie Pontani. Choreography by Angie Pontani.
