Meet The Producers

Bella Blue (she/hers): femme presenting unicorn


AJay Strong (he/his): trans man extraordinaire 


Bella has been performing burlesque since 2007 and producing shows in New Orleans since 2009. AJay has 15 years of burlesque experience and stage management. They combined forces in 2014 and have become the leading producers of burlesque and variety entertainment in New Orleans. This powerhouse duo puts on an average of 20 shows a month that take place all over the great stages of New Orleans. Their goal is to provide quality burlesque entertainment that highlights diversity as well as a variety of talents from New Orleans and out of town guest artists. Whether you are looking for a classic taste of striptease or something wild and unexpected; we have a show for you. Don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions regarding any of our shows or for private event bookings.

Calendar of Events

We offer a wide variety of entertainment options that take place all over the New Orleans metro area. Our casts feature LGBTQPOC performers and striving allies; although many of our performers intersect in these identities. We believe that burlesque is more than what meets society's standards of beauty and we celebrate all bodies. 

COVID-19 Update:

We will not be holding

any in person shows for the unforeseeable future. We are grateful to all of you  and hope to see everyone again on the other side of this. Take care of yourself and each other.

The Dirty Dime Peepshow


When you're ready for something other than the regular 'ole bump and grind....THE DIRTY DIME PEEPSHOW!!!

The Dirty Dime Peepshow is the most outlandish burlesque show in all of New Orleans, produced by Bella Blue and AJay Strong. The Dirty Dime provides a platform for performers to showcase the acts that highlight the weird, the political, the performance art, make a mess, and more. We encourage you to come ready to be challenged, shocked, amazed, and confused! You'll laugh, cry, and probably go home and Google some stuff....

When: Every 3rd Saturday of the month.

 Time: 11pm doors. Midnight show.
Cost: $15 per person. General admission only. No reservations.

Strip Roulette


Strip Roulette consists of 2 teams of burlesque performers who will have to strip for the lives of their g-strings! They will have to improv a burlesque act to music that they have not picked out and will be carefully curated by DJ Ajent O to be as awkward and hilarious as possible!! And, on top of that, they will be given an uncomfortably obscure prop that they will have to incorporate into their striptease!

Fun, games, prizes, stripping and more!!

When:  Please refer to the calendar for dates! 
Where: The Allways Lounge--2240 St. Claude Ave.
Time: Doors at 10pm. Show at 11pm.
Cost: $15 per person.

Whiskey and Rhinestones

Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday Night

Nestled in the heart of the CBD lies a London Style social club where some of the most skilled of burlesque artists take it off each night. Imagine lounging on comfortable furniture that flanks each side of the room while sipping on a cocktail inspired by your favorite performer of the evening. The show begins and ladies dance just a few feet away from you as they channel the movement of burlesque performers of the 40's and 50's. Side show feats take place right in front of your eyes. All of your senses are heightened at once. The show lasts just about an hour but the memory of your night will last for the rest of your days.

This is Whiskey & Rhinestones.
