Pink Box Burlesque will present "Pink Box Burlesque Celebrates the 1920s" at the Bama Theatre in Tuscaloosa, Friday, March 25, at 8:30 p.m. According to a news release from the Tuscaloosa-based troupe, the 1920s are "the decade that gave us women's suffrage, prohibition, tassels and the heyday of traditional vaudeville."
According to PBB, all proceeds from the show will benefit the restoration of the Lyric Theatre, the magnificent old vaudeville house located at Third Avenue North and 18th Street in downtown Birmingham.
We're told the show will feature the women of PBB, as well as music from the PBB band, a jazz group called Trio 1:29. Burlesque performers will include Tempest Le Blanc, Tesla Coil, Lady Jade and group founder Mama Dixie. The members of the PBB Band are Phat Daddy (bass), Colonel Booker (guitar) and The Assassin (drums).
According to the new PBB web site, the group focuses on traditional burlesque and pin-up culture but offers a variety of performers, both male and female, including comics, singers and jugglers.
Advance tickets are available for $10 at www.pinkboxburlesque.com/1920. Tickets will be $12 at the door. The show is for adults 18 years of age and up. The Bama Theatre is located at 600 Greensboro Ave. in Tuscaloosa.
