If your love of The Sopranos and The Godfather has got you naively thinking that there’s something romantic about the mob, you may be right. At least, some of neo-burlesque’s biggest stars think so. Dirty Martini, Julie Atlas Muz, and Harvest Moon join forces for Neapolitan yumminess and organized crime/comedy in That’s Amore: All-Italia Burlesque. The voluttuoso Miss Martini, who admits to being Italian-American “insomuch as I was raised on TV, egg noodles with hamburger and a healthy dose of American cheese,” does a sexy Mafioso-themed bit, while Jesus, “the king of Italy himself,” hosts. How’d you like to mambo Italiano with that don?
