Like all live entertainment, burlesque is a transitory art. Every performance is like a fluttering fan dance — now you see it, now you don’t. But certain artists shape the form indelibly, and they’re celebrated tonight at the Legends of Burlesque Calendar Show, as today’s stars — including Ginger Twist, Lil’ Miss Lixx, Tiny D, and Dangrrr Doll — pay homage to the all-time greats, all to raise money to help these groundbreaking performers attend this year’s induction ceremony in Las Vegas. Miss Astrid hosts, with a special appearance by Canadian burlesque legend Judith Stein — the Grand Beaver of Burlesque.
