Coney Island USA's annual Spring Gala is the organization's premiere fundraising event of the year. Coney Island USA is the not-for-profit arts organization known for the Coney Island Circus Sideshow, Burlesque at the Beach and the Mermaid Parade. The 2013 Spring Gala: The Burlesque Manifesto will honor the role Coney Island USA played in beginning the neo-burlesque movement that is now a global sensation.
Just over 4 months ago the entire ground floor of Coney Island USA's 1917 landmark arts center was wiped out by Superstorm Sandy. This Saturday night, over 50 of the world's greatest burlesque and sideshow superstars will be lending their skills to help us recover and show you how it all began, with the stage performance of The Burlesque Manifesto.
Tickets are $60 for General Admissions, $100 for Friend tickets (Dos Equis throughout the event), and $250 for VIP (open bar, Hors d'eorvres, a gift bag and exclusive access to our VIP section).
When: Saturday, March 9 from 7pm to 11pm
Where Webster Hall, 125 East 11 St. (Between 3rd and 4th Ave.)
