L'Edition Francaise

At tonight’s Bastille Day party, it isn’t about what you put on, but what you take off. Burlesque artists will dance and undress to an all-Gallic program of music by Serge Gainsbourg, Brigitte Bardot, and others. (Wait—BB made music, too? Never mind…) On the roster are Miss Lily Verlaine and Kitten LaRue (of The Burlesque Nutcracker and The Atomic Bombshells, respectively). Also, choreographer Olivier Wevers has made a cheeky duet for Vincent Lopez and Kylie Lewallen, where they systematically replace what they’ve first removed—striptease in reverse. (Note: Second show is 21 and over.) SANDRA KURTZ

Wed., July 14, 7 & 10 p.m., 2010
