ABurlyQ! was conceived in early 2010 as a way to return the Sideshow and Vaudeville arts to their rightful place on stage alongside burlesque, as it was done around the turn of the Twentieth Century. Now, we're back and bigger than ever in our fifth year of incredible performances from across North America!

Once again, we're bringing two huge shows, each one unique, to two big nights at the African American Performing Arts Center Theater, plus pre- and post- parties, brunches, and much more! For complete show information including the Saturday Night Showcase, performances, competitions, pre- and post-parties, brunches and more, please visit www.aburlyq.com, or find us here on Facebook. 

Presented by the fine folks at Pabst Blue Ribbon and Gumption Cider, and sponsored by our friends at The Recognition Place,Gilded Cage Burlesk, Ten Penny Tattoo, and more TBA. See you all soon for the really big shows!!
