Dirty Martini and The New Burlesque Premieres in New York

Dirty Martini and the New Burlesque. A film by Gary Beeber.

A few months ago “Tournee” (“On Tour”) starring the fabulous Dirty Martini and Julie Atlas Muz took the Cannes Film Festival by storm (winning the Palm for best director and the audience award – Congratulations!!!) and several short weeks later on June 13, 2010, “Dirty Martini and the New Burlesque” made its New York premiere at  the Abrons Art Center.  Director Gary Beeber’s film about the neo-Burlesque movement is fantastic!  It takes you on a journey of the hottest performers in the Burlesque scene and gives generous nods to the legends who have influenced the new school.  The evening was hosted by Mr. Showbiz, Murray Hill, and when Murray hosts a party, you know you are in for a treat.  I spotted New York legends Penny Arcade and the King of the Downtown Scene, Earl Dax in the crowd.  The audience screened the film and then we were treated to performances by the film’s stars.  The audience loved both the film and the perfomances as both were greeted with thunderous applause.

I’ve seen Dirty Martini perform many times, but it took watching this film to fully understand that she is not just a performer – she is a legend!  She has the look, she has the moves, and of course she has the body to seduce and inspire audiences, worldwide.  The film touches on the trials and tribulations of Burlesque performers and the result is an intimate portrait of what lies beneath the glitter and wigs, behind the scenes.  I met most of the performers after the show and they were all extremely nice!  I’ll be posting photos of my encounters with these Burlesque stars very soon, so stay tuned.  I also took videos of Dirty Martini and Julie Atlas Muz performing hot numbers, but I need to check with the YouTube police to make sure they don’t delete my account for violating the terms of service.  I know for sure I won’t be able to post the video I took of Tigger! as it contains full frontal male nudity.  Rats!  If I can sneak these videos past the censors, I promise, you’ll love them as these performances are really great! For now, you can see the trailer for “Dirty Martini and the New Burlesque” here, but be warned, there might be some visuals that are NSFCMP (Not Safe For Closed-Minded People).  Speaking of images that are NSFCMP, please enjoy some photos of the awesome performances we were treated to after watching this wonderful film.  Some of the images contain nudity, so please proceed with caution.

Isengart!

Isengart!

You know you’re in for a special treat when New York legend Lee Chappell throws a party.  Foreign Affairs – A Cabaret for the 21st Century, is musical candy for the eyes and the ears.  Hosted by the fabulous Isengart and Lady Rizo, this show features some of the most talented performers this decade has seen.  Tonight’s show was a tribute to Lee Chappell, who was celebrating his birthday.  The packed house was treated to over 2 hours of performances by Lady Rizo, Isengart, Corey Tut, Julie Atlas Muz and Amber Martin, just to name a few.  Each week at the cabaret you can expect surprise performers from Joey Arias to Alan Cumming.

Tonight’s show featured Isengart singing the Beatles’ “Rocky Racoon” and The Doors’ “Light My Fire,” two of my favorite songs, so you know I was going wild.  It only got better as Lady Rizo sang Nena’s “99 Red Balloons” and Leonard Cohen’s “I’m Your Man.”  Burlesque legend Julie Atlas Muz did a striptease for the begging crowd and served the birthday boy cake in the sexiest way possible.  Amber Martin sang the hell out of Janis Joplin’s “Turtle Blues” and I know Janis was looking in on our party smiling (and toasting us with her bottle of Southern Comfort) wherever she is.

The final performance of Foreign Affairs at the Night Hotel will be December 2, 2009 before it moves to its new location in Downtown Manhattan in 2010.  When dates and venues are available, you’ll hear about it here.  What a night! And many happy returns, Lee!

See some more pictures from Foreign Affairs, some NSFCMP (not safe for closed minded people) pictures of Julie Atlas Muz as well as my encounters with Isengart and Amber Martin after the jump.
