Best Burlesque Night - 2012
Black Box Burlesque
They might be split personalities, but neither Reyna Von Vett nor her on-stage alter ego, Cora Vette, is a plain Jane. One of the strongest — and sassiest — personalities in Denver burlesque, Vette's creatively coy sex appeal lends itself to rowdy and raunchy rotating themes — planned by Von Vett and other organizers of Black Box Burlesque, and scheduled the third Friday of each month. In March, the leaders and their coed troupe channeled '80s nostalgia for "My Teen Angst Bullsh*t," taking on both teen-dream John Hughes hits and the easy target that is Risky Business. At Bar Standard, Black Box's current home in a long roster of Denver sites, fans can order bottle service and get their drink on as the costumes come off.
