Studio L’amour presents the most ambitious and spectacular burlesque show ever to hit Chicago.

A cast of over 25 performers will grace the stage at Chicago’s Historic Music Box Theatre for Superstars of Burlesque. Every act is a Burlesque Hall of Famer – Michelle L’amour (2005), Imogen Kelly (2012), Dirty Martini (2004), Russell Bruner (2012), Roxi D’Lite (2010), Frenchie Kiss and Jett Adore (2012), Dolls of Doom (2010), Julie Atlas Muz (2006), Kalani Kokonuts (2009), Chicago Starlets (2010) and Foxy Tann and the Wham Bam Thank You Ma’ams (2006). All titanic talent hosted by none other than “Mr.” Showbiz – Murray Hill.

And as if that wasn’t enough, for the first time Superstars of Burlesque is bringing a guest of honor to the stage – a living legend of burlesque – B-Movie vixen and former wife of sexploitation king Russ Meyer – Miss Kitten Natividad.

It’s an unstoppable lineup of incredible striptease expertise. And it’s only in Chicago at the Music Box Theatre.

Mr. Skin Presents: The Telephone Book

A film by Nelson Lyon starring Margaret Brewster, Roger C. Carmel and David Dozer


The film stars an unknown beauty named Sara Kennedy (a distant relative of the Kennedy family) and features Jill Clayburgh (Academy Award nominee for An Unmarried Woman) in one of her early screen roles. Also appearing in the move are an eclectic group of actors, including Barry Morse, William Hickey, Roger C Carmel and Norman Rose. Andy Warhol regulars Ultra Violet, Ondine and Geri Miller are also in the cast, as was Warhol himself, though his scene was later cut and subsequently lost. A substantial reward is being offered for any information leading to the recover of the lost Warhol footage.

Producer and legendary ad-man Merv Bloch will be on hand both nights to discuss the making of this fascinating film, as well as his own career running ad campaigns for some of cinema’s most iconic films.
