Accordion, burlesque, and the idea that it what you don’t see that makes it all matter.

Squeezebox Cabaret is not for the modest viewer. In classic burlesque form, you’ll watch the four dancers — Scarlette Fussion, LeTabby Lexington, Holly Von Sinn and Judy Lee — bare it mostly all to the crowd while working the stage and taking off portions of their clothing as artistically as all get out. If you sit in the front row, you’ll get quite a show, but beware the flying sequinned skirts, feather boas, and bouncy balls.
The show, presented by House of Hush Burlesque, is hosted by Tiff Hall, who is accompanied by Goldtooth the accordion. Together, Hall belts out pop music’s top hits such as Lizzo’s Truth Hurts and Lil Nas X’s Old Town Road. Hall’s voice, paired with the soulful accordion, and the dancers’ sultry slow moves get more than a few hoots and hollers from the packed audience.
If you’re planning to attend the show, remember, it takes a lot of courage for people to stand on a stage, let alone dance on one while seducing the crowd and undressing. Squeezebox Cabaret is about empowerment, and that’s the one job of the audience, other than having fun. As Hall says at the beginning of the show, “No one wants to shake it for golf claps.” Get rowdy, get loud, and support the incredible dancers who are giving it their all and looking good doing it.
Squeezebox Cabaret is a guaranteed good time, and there’s only two more showings, so get your tickets while they’re hot.
