Best Burlesque Performer: Vita DeVoid

Best Burlesque Performer

We weren’t sure what to make of the shticky and often tacky burlesque fad a few years ago, but Ms. DeVoid has bestowed some legitimacy on the retro craze. More than your run-o’-the-mill tassel-twirler, she spins and eats fire and overall brings style, sass and business savvy to the artform while showing off outlandish costumes and personae and enlisting national dancers and sideshow artists who perform with her troupe, Thee VaudeVillains Burlesque Company.
