Burlesque Legend Marks 85th Birthday At Royal Resort

The legendary Dixie Evans celebrated her 85th birthday at newly renovated Royal Resort. It was a truly sexy burlesque birthday celebration fit for the queen of burlesque. There was no end in sight of thigh high stockings, garter belts, push up bras, and plunging necklines, and of course, stars. Many of industry’s biggest stars came out to attend the big celebration commemorating the living legend’s big birthday.

The father of theatrical undressing and striptease, Harold Minsky dubbed Dixie Evans “The Marilyn Monroe of Burlesque” and everyone agrees that she has inspired generations of performers like no others to preserve the art and history of burlesque.

The celebration included an all star line up to honor Dixie Evans, including Kitten on the Keys, Kitten DeVille, Kalani Kokonuts, Renea’ LeRoux, Angie Pontani, Rita Star, and Vi Vacious. During the show, while being crooned by the lovely ladies, and enjoying all of the other performances, Dixie Evans sipped champagne and shared her table with a friend, Tempest Storm, also a fellow veteran burlesque vixen.

After the performances, there was a champagne toast, cupcakes, and even more performances, not to mention a pool party. Of course, there was also a big cake surprise, with Cha Cha Velour popping out. What a way to celebrate 85 years!
