Kristina Chan, director and lead Babydoll, told Patch that the performance takes the audience on a journey from burlesque's inception to the present upbeat tease. Chan said the show includes 1950s-style burlesque backed by a live jazz band, comic emcees, vocalists, samba dancers, swing dancers, variety acts and modern burlesque teases.
Doors open at 6 p.m. Friday and the show starts at 7:30 p.m. Guests can enjoy a glass of wine before the show at the MCASD.
