    Texas Burlesque Festival

    Looking for an exciting, titillating night out? You'll find it over three days at this festival featuring the legendary Penny Starr Sr., fresh off her appearance on America’s Got Talent and this year's reigning King of Burlesque, P. NoNoire. With too much talent to fit in the originally planned two days, they added a Thursday mixer and performance at Kick Butt Coffee (5775 Airport), with the remaining shows at the Long Center.
    May 11-13. Thu., 7pm; Fri.-Sat., 8pm. $40 and up.
