Literary Burlesque!

Posted By on Tue, Jul 1, 2008 at 4:34 PM

The goings-on in Tucson are relatively slim during the summer, partially due to it being damn hot outside. Usually, the City Week section, the fiefdom of the interns (including myself), tries to alleviate this boredom by pointing out interesting goings on around the city. But sometimes, deadlines and the reality of being a weekly paper means interesting events fall through the cracks (through no fault of us, the dynamic, beleaguered interns).

In such a vein, I present to you, the blog-reading public, Valley of the Ashes, a burlesque variety show based on The Great Gatsby. It's 3 bucks to get in; it's at the Hotel Congress at 311 E. Congress St.; it's at 8 p.m., Thursday, July 3, and it's a friggin' burlesque show based on The Great Gatsby.

I mean, if nothing else, this is cheap and weird enough that it warrants further investigation. Put on your best flapper gear, and give it a look.

Call Hotel Congress at 622-8848 for more info.
