DROM, New York City
The 3rd annual Asian Burlesque Spectacular featured Calamity Chang, Sukki Singapora in a tribute to Asian burlesque legend Barbara Yung, Kaoru, Chow Mein, Kimchichi, Aurora Starr, Cheeky Lane, Dame Cuchifrita, Violetta Beretta, and Nikita Bitch Project in a Michael Jackson tribute. Sweetie was the MC for the evening, handling the hecklers well. Has the annual festival outgrown Drom in its third year? While we love the stage, the lighting and the fog machine, here’s hoping they find a bigger venue to handle the crowds next year.
Photographer Elyse Fradkin was there to capture a beautiful collection of photographs for your viewing pleasure.
