Overview

Overview Gilded Lily Burlesque Presents: Fight the Power

Burlesque has long been used to lampoon power structures. Perhaps, there are few times in history that are this ripe for a good ol’ lampooning than RIGHT NOW. The ladies of Gilded Lily Burlesque have teamed up to use the power of their, ahem, positions to satire the state of the world. Let Gilded Lily tape on their pasties, throw on some sequins, add a dash of va-va-voom and FIGHT THE POWER!

Gilded Lily Burlesque will donate a portion of ticket sales to The Innocence Project, a national litigation and public policy organization dedicated to exonerating wrongfully convicted individuals through DNA testing and reforming the criminal justice system to prevent future injustice.  Learn more at: http://www.innocenceproject.org/about-innocence-project.
