    I saw the show at the Orange peel last year. It was so awesome !! VIP is the way to go.

    When my husband first suggested ABS fest I was a little reluctant to go… sure HE would like burlesque but would I? Answer- YES! It was amazing, it was empowering, it was funny, it was one of the most enjoyable “date nights” of 2016.
