What is Burlesque?
“BURLESQUE (or burlesk): a humorous and provocative stage show featuring slapstick humor, comic skits, bawdy songs, striptease acts, and a scantily clad chorus.“
-American Dictionary

In The Hawaii Burlesque Festival & Revue's case it's all that and MORE! The HBF is going by the standard definition of American Burlesque here, but words fail to capture all of the naughty fun we've got in store for you! Burlesque is artful striptease, with an emphasis on the TEASE! Our performers pour their hearts and souls into their work, telling stories, making statements and turning everyday situations into delightful opportunities to see things a little differently...and a little less dressed!
