Original Tease, Celebrating Three Years of Chicago Burlesque!

In 2013, Original Tease started off with a simple mission– to bring together a group of independent Chicago burlesque performers and put on one fabulous show! For three years we have been performing monthly for free at Chicago’s Lincoln Tap Room, as well as at other bars, venues, and events all over the city (and even the country!).

This Friday, April 8th, Original Tease will be officially celebrating our third anniversary and we would love for you to come party with us at the place where it all began! And as always, FREE! What’s truly amazing about this group and the last three years is that you will still see the original core group performing in our monthly shows as well as many of our new talented performers and friends.

For fun, here’s a look back at our very first show in April 2013! We hope you have enjoyed and will continue to support some of the best of Chicago burlesque!
