Abrons will host the New York premiere of Gary Beeber's brilliant documentary DIRTY MARTINI AND THE NEW BURLESQUE, an honest account of the outrageous life and career of Dirty Martini, one of the originators of New York's neo-burlesque scene. The movie's seductiveness comes from its sexy acts as well as its dark exploration of the performers' struggle to pay their bills, quest for stable love relationships and inability to envision the future after burlesque.

The movie features some of the best that burlesque has to offer: Julie Atlas Muz, World Famous *BOB*, Jo Boobs, Bambi the Mermaid, Tigger!, Bunny Love and Angie Pontani. These prolific figures of the neo-burlesque community will all share the stage for a one-night only performance after the screening, hosted by the inestimable MC, Murray Hill.

Think variety show with boobs and glitter; stripping with tongue firmly in cheek. New York's burlesque is performance art, modern dance and political satire, while its stars are joyful, bold and witty cult figures.
