We've got some folks interested in performing a Burlesque routine on Friday night, later in the evening. I'm trying to find out what kind of interest level exists for those of you who would be willing to attend?

That actually sounds pretty cool; I don't think I've ever heard of a con doing a burlesque show. Would it have any sort of gaming connection, cuz I think that'd sweeten the deal a lot, otherwise it might seem out of place.

Let me explain a little bit more....

Hello everyone, my name is Anja Keister and I am a burlesque performer in New York City. I am also a board game nerd. Since burlesque shows are popping up at more and more conventions (nerdapalooza, otakon) I wanted to propose the idea of a board/card game themed burlesque show for UberCon.

If you are unfamiliar with burlesque I highly suggest looking it up, but the quick synopsis is that it is vaudville + striptease - the nudity = burlesque. No one will be naked (at least no one on stage....) but it would probably be an 18+ affair and would be done later into Friday night. Depending on how much interest there is in this event, it's still up in the air whether or not there will be tips collected after the show or a small ticket price.

So, what do you all think?

I made a reply but it didn't show up, just testing to see if this one will...

I'll probably be running or playing games. If this does happen, it would have to be in a separate location away from gaming and there should be an ID check. I'm okay with it. I was considering running "mature board games" after midnight this year.
