THE BURLESQUE SHOW
When: 9 p.m. Thursday, May 5
Or: Hotel Borgata Casino & Spa
What to expect: After a pandemic-induced hiatus, the popular “burlesque show” returns to the Music Box theater in Borgata for its eighth season, starting May 5 and at 9 p.m. Thursday through September 29. There is no show on May 19. The “burlesque show” pays homage to the revue-style showmanship of vaudeville, with elements of dance, comedy, acrobatics, magic, and satirical parodies of everyday life. There is an adult-themed striptease component, but one that is designed to highlight the playful nature of the series rather than anything brazenly obscene or risque. A review of the show on TripAdvisor.com said: “The burlesque show at Borgata was an absolute hoot. We really enjoyed it very much. It was tastefully done with a cast of talented and attractive dancers and hilarious comedy sketch type numbers. The show is fast-paced and features burlesque show stars from around the world.
