Whirly Bones Collective Benefit Variety Spectacular 

The Whirly Bones Collective Benefit Variety Spectacular is a gypsy mix of street performers, music and striptease all to foster experimental styles of entertaining. The part-circus, part-burlesque and part-live music show that is the Variety Spectacular presents a little bit of everything. Well-known groups Fleur de Tease Burlesque (pictured) and the New Orleans Bingo! Show will be joined by the members of the Whirly Bones, local artists who practice everything from circus arts to hula-hooping, yoga and other unconventional performance styles, for a night of flashy entertainment. The vaudeville-style show's acrobatics routines, four trapeze acts and clown theater will culminate in a company-wide jamboree with the Bingo! Show. The benefit's goal is to raise enough money to send three Whirly Bones artists away to physical training schools so they can perfect their acts and bring world-class variety art back to New Orleans. Tickets are $15-$20 general admission, $40 for VIP seating. -- Emily Hohenwarter
