Bustout Burlesque is America's only authentic 1950s-style burlesque show, recreating the glamorous nightclub entertainment found on Bourbon Street decades ago. It brings back sexy, glamorous, and risque New Orleans-style entertainment with elegance, flair, and wit.
Glamorous girls, a comic emcee, a sexy songstress, along with mood lighting, props, and a live jazz band, makes this an unforgettable and unique New Orleans experience.
The traditional New Orleans jazz band backs the performers, electrifying and energizing the dancers and audience alike. The show is a feast of sights and sounds bound to thrill and enthrall men and women, young and old.

Notes: Cast of dancers change from show to show. There are currently 6 Bustout Burlesque dancers. Each show usually features 4 dancers. New themed striptease acts are introduced periodically. Bustout Burlesque typically performs two shows a night.
Bustout Burlesque premiered on March 13, 2005 at One Eyed Jacks in the French Quarter. It ran every Sunday night for 3 months. Local and international celebrities were among the throngs of attendees. The show was also a critical success. Three former burlesque dancers, Evangeline the Oyster Girl, Tajmah, and Wild Cherry were on hand to sign autographs at the show and provide guidance to the dancers. In September of 2005, Bustout Burlesque was scheduled to shoot a segment for a reality television series, and also move into its new home at The Parish at the House of Blues with new dancers and a new band. Hurricane Katrina had other plans, and in August of 2005 all of the costumes and props were destroyed along with the home of the show's producer, Rick Delaup. Cast and crew, many of whom also suffered much damage, were spread out across the country. In October of 2005, Delaup returned to New Orleans and made plans to rebuild the show from scratch. After regrouping with remaining cast and crew, Delaup opened the new edition of Bustout Burlesque at Tipitina's French Quarter with a new costumer, new emcee, new dancers, and a new band. The show opened March 4, 2006 and ran every Saturday night at 8pm and 10pm. Again, the show was a critical success. Amazingly, the show kept afloat for 10 months post-Katrina when many French Quarter businesses were closed or in the process of closing. Unexpectedly, attendance peaked with the hurricane season in the summer of 2006. After a two-weekend Christmas edition, Bustout Burlesque closed at Tipitina's on December 16, 2006. In March 2007, Bustout Burlesque moved to the main stage at House of Blues. And on June 16, 2007, Bustout Burlesque sold-out the main stage with an audience of 900 people.
