Photos: Crème de Luxe Brings the New, Old Burlesque to Denver

Host Professor Phelyx and a bevy of the beautiful ladies of Crème de Luxe brought back the classic art of burlesque at the Oriental Theater on May 28, with classy routines, Ziegfeld-worthy costumes, a live jazz band and a good helping of the old bump and grind. All photos by Ken Hamblin III.  Now see the full Crème de Luxe slideshow.
