Final Farewell For the Old Slipper Room Tonight

Must Read

The Slipper Room, home of L.E.S. burlesque and a multitude of wackiness for over a decade, is closing it’s doors with a bang tonight as it prepares for a full-fledged renovation.  Artistic Director James Habacker writes, “Tonight, Wednesday June 16, will be our closing night party at the Slipper Room’s current location.  Wednesday nights have long been my favorite night at the Slipper Room, and tonight should be our most memorable show yet!  The Wednesdays have the feel of the old East Village, when performance bars were a neighborhood thing.  Now there are times I feel like the Slipper Room is the last of a breed, and even though we’ll be back in the spring with an even better theatre, I can’t help but feel that its the end of an era..

Tonight’s Show will kick off at 9:00 with Rudi Macaggii, acromedian, warming up the room.  A bit after ten, Mel Frye will take to the stage for one last hurrah, backed by the Greg Garing All Star Band, and featuring the incredible talents of Gal Friday, Melody Sweet, Bambi Themermaid, and Dirty Martini.  But that’s not all! I’m going to open it up to any of the performers from the burlesque scene who want to get up there and do one last number.  I expect it to be a late night, and a memorable one, and yes, there will be a naked pie fight!”  9:00pm // 167 Orchard St.
