Ricci Cortez, The Sleepy-Time Gal.

Exotic World

While Exotic World is closed, the archives are held at the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas. Devotees continue to raise money to open a permanent public museum, but the legends and rising stars of Burlesque still celebrate every year at the BHOF Weekender held at the Orleans hotel in Las Vegas. A one-of-a-kind event, although not as roadside as it used to be. Worth visiting in early June.

Burlesque Hall of Fame

Exotic World (aka the Retired Strippers' Hall of Fame) lives on in its current incarnation as the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas. The modestly sized -- if not modestly displayed -- exhibit fits in a couple of small rooms off the entrance to the Emergency Arts building on Fremont Street.

We were told Dixie Evans ("The Marilyn Monroe of Burlesque") might be there to meet fans. While Dixie was under the weather and couldn't make it, we got to meet "Satan's Angel," an exotic dancer known for her signature flaming tassels act. Angel reminisced about the Burlesque circuit and all the fun out at the Miss Exotic World Pageant that was held in Helendale, CA from 1990 to 2004.

The pageant now takes place in Las Vegas each June. The museum hopes to expand into new quarters eventually, to properly display the bulk of the collection in storage.

Burlesque Hall of Fame

The Burlesque Hall of Fame is only open Fri-Sunday, from 12pm-5pm. If you can, be sure to go on a Sunday, when Dixie Evans (The Marilyn Monroe of Burlesque) is there, giving tours, telling stories and signing pictures.
