For more than a decade, Michelle L’amour – Miss Exotic World, Reigning Queen of Burlesque 2005 – has been bringing Chicago the “Hottest Night of Winter” with amazing Valentine’s Day productions.
And now Michelle is preparing to unleash an entirely new show – Le Nu – an “intimate European inspired evening like Chicago has never seen”. Guests will be immersed in the sumptuous surroundings of Carnivale’s ‘Samba Room’ and served decadent desserts while a burlesque superstar and a hand picked collection of amazing musicians, dancers, absurdist clowns and more entertain them.
Michelle, whose Butthoven video became a viral sensation clocking millions of views, has a devastating repertoire. From her legendary Sally Rand tribute to her “heart-f*cking” La Panthere, she has cemented her place in the burlesque history books.
Michelle L’amour is relaunching her entire brand with the most daring show she’s ever conceived. We’ve heard a few juicy details about her jaw-dropping new act, and take our word for it that it is an UNMISSABLE spectacle. Expect to go “beyond burlesque” for a sensual evening of artistry that “revels in the bold expression of vulnerable desire”. AND they’re serving dessert! If you like passion, live music, daring feats of skill and absurd humour, bring your lover and spend a romantic evening with the decadent cast of Le Nu.
