So you’ve heard about burlesque, and aren’t quite sure………..
What is burlesque?
Burlesque is part theater, part comedy, part storytelling, part stripping- but most importantly- all fun! Burlesque is as American as Jazz, and is a cultural phenomenon, that at its heart, is about celebrating women in all of their forms. Burlesque has a long history in the U.S. and it has many incarnations- and at Viva Dallas Burlesque you will experience all of them- from classic to neo- burlesque, comedic to vaudevillian, we have it all!

What should I wear?
Everything from a casual jeans to period- inspired (1930s-50s) dresses and suits will be on display in our crowds. Wear what makes you happy!
Is it the same show every time?
No! Our performers and themes change every single month so it’s always a brand new show!
How do I get tickets?
Tickets are available during pre-sale (ends 5 hours prior to every event) via the Lakewood Theater and the exclusive way to buy VIP tables (the only reserved section in the theater- you cannot get closer to the action!). Tickets are usually available at the door, please be prepared to be patient as there will be a line at the box office.
