Saints and Sinners
All summer long, Burlesque troupe Creole Sweet Tease are bringing old-school glamor to The Saint Hotel. We spoke to Artistic Director and dancer Trixie Minx to get the lowdown on the art of tease.
How does Creole Sweet Tease stand out from Burlesque shows?
We highlight the most elegant, high-end combination of gorgeous dancing girls – Madame Mystere, Piper Marie, Roxie Le Rouge, and myself – hot New Orleans jazz, and magic. The show is also interactive, so audience members are not merely observers.
What is special about performing Burlesque in NOLA?
During the 1950s, New Orleans was the epicenter for Burlesque. The dancers and musicians were celebrities. Its popularity faded with time, but in the late 1990s it came back into style. I’m thrilled to see it gain such a large following again.

What is it about The Saint Hotel that makes for good Burlesque?
The Burgundy Bar in the Saint Hotel is one of my favorite places to perform. There’s a huge window behind the stage onto the street, so people walking by get way more than they bargained for. Their reactions are hilarious.
