CANCELLED DUE TO WEATHER! Intimate, A Night of Burlesque at Kurant Cider

Due to weather conditions and the extreme temperatures forecasted this evening, we have made the decision to cancel our Intimate Show at Kurant Cider tonight. We value everyone’s safety and we have many performers and team members traveling from north of the city. We will have our inaugural show at the amazing Kurant Cider on February 17th. If you purchased tickets, you will be refunded. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to see you at Kurant in February!

The Looking Glass Revue invites you to join them at their all new monthly residency at Kurant Cider in the Fishtown section of Philadelphia. Every 3rd Sunday of the month, the troupe will take you on luxurious and sensual journey through the very best of classic burlesque. This unique show will give audiences a speakeasy experience as our performers shed their inhibitions with Old Hollywood style and glamour. 


Kurant Fishtown is located in the heart of the Philadelphia Riverwards on the historic Girard corridor.

Sunday, January 20, 2019 show stars:

Mika Romantic: The biracial burlesque star, whose bits don't quit! She is an award-winning and internationally known striptease artist and model who has been blowing minds since 2012. Romantic is one of the top Burlesque performers in Philadelphia and the undisputed Queen of Burlesque in the Lehigh Valley. She has performed in some of the hottest venues and festivals in the world and now can add movie star to her resume. In 2015 she was named one of the sexiest acts to follow by GQ Magazine UK and took home three titles at the Burlypicks Competition, including World Champion. She was awarded the first ever "SPLOOSH" of the year at the Philly Golden Tassel Jawns. Mika was recently crowned "Duchess of Viva Las Vegas 21."

Lil’ Steph: The Criminally Cute Lil' Steph is Philly's notorious showgirl and artistic directrix. She has sauntered across stages in 7 countries, teasing audiences in Paris, Prague, Rome, Turin, Amsterdam and Hamburg to name a few. She has had the honour of performing at The Burlesque Hall of Fame, headline The Empire Burlesque Festival and win "Most Classic" at The Carolina Burlesque Festival. For over a decade this cheeky ecdysiast has been bringing her decadent neo classic style to cities from coast to coast including NYC, New Orleans, Boston, Chicago and L.A. while producing numerous shows in Philly like Bravissimo Burlesque, Rasputin's Room and Sin Cities. You can catch her every First Friday in Old City as the resident window siren at Portside Parlor.

Miss V: Miss V is a burlesque performer and retro styled cover model. She is the producer of the popular monthly show, Secret Lair Burlesque, in Philadelphia, PA and has graced the covers and pages of all today's top pin-up magazines, including Retro Lovely, Delicious Dolls, and Bachelor Pad Magazine, just to name a few. She has also had the honor of being a brand model for Sourpuss Clothing and has walked the cat walk for all of today’s top retro fashion lines. She began her burlesque career in 2015 and has been dazzling audiences with glamorous acts ever since. While her visual aesthetic on the stage hearkens back to the vixens of the 40's and 50's, she loves to incorporate modern elements, such as latex fashion and her favorite post-punk music, into her acts. Known for her glamourous and extravagant costumes, she believes burlesque is an opportunity to create an intimate but fleeting fantasy which she shares with the audience.

Emcee: Jayson Simpson will guide you through the evening as our starlets take the stage.
