From Little Egypt's belly dancing to the revues in Bowery saloons to "girlie shows" to mid-century strip joints to the explosive recent resurgence, Coney Island has always been on the cutting edge of the evergreen performing art form known as burlesque. Writer/performer Trav S.D., "No Applause, Just Throw Money: The Book That Made Vaudeville Famous" takes you through the many ways Coney has contributed to burlesque history, aided and abetted by Aubrey Coletti (a.k.a "Enshara") who will illustrate the story in dance!
