The Lalas Burlesque Show
By Billy McCall [ Fri Oct 11 2013 3:30 AM ]
Few people know that New York City outlawed the word “burlesque” in the 1930s, or so I’m told by Tonya Kay while discussing her next visit to New Mexico. I get the feeling that she enjoys that sexy, rebellious sensibility that burlesque shows still seem to inspire. Last year she performed at the Launchpad with local companies Burque Burlesque and Burlesque Noir, but this week, she takes the stage with her own LA-based group, The Lalas. They’re a burlesque troupe comprised of professional actors, dancers and performers, each of whom has her own impressive list of TV and film work. They not only perform solo striptease acts, but ensemble routines as well, combining comedy, acting and various specialty arts. “Society wants to enjoy the wit and romance of sensuality,” Tonya says, “not just the two-dimensional sex objects we are fed in magazines.” Tomorrow night The Lalas will fill the San Felipe stage with eight very sensual ladies, promising to deliver a sexy night of world-class entertainment.
