New York: The Boylesque Fest happened. Michelle L’Amour brought Pretty Funny to Gotham, while Stand Up and Take Your Clothes Off continues to knock ’em dead.

Shameless is coming to Drom, and Nathan Lane’s The Nance will be broadcast on PBS.
Elsewhere in the U.S.: Amish Burlesque in Pittsburgh, Funtime in Omaha, Fantasy Island in Connecticut, a festival in Virginia, plus Boylesque in Fort Collins, Colorado, Hubba Hubba in SF, Marilyn in Phoenix—pix here, a new “brown” burlesque troupe in NOLA, something in Tennessee, and Bq-sponsored Self Defense in Seattle (for reals)
