To Do Friday: Risque Business

Dita Von Teese.

Dita Von Teese.

The fashion world’s favorite stripping star, Marilyn Manson ex-wife Dita Von Teese (née Heather Renée Sweet, which sounds very porn star to us), brings her 90-minute revue “Burlesque: Strip Strip Hooray!” to the Gramercy Theatre for a four-night run. A Cointreau Brand Ambassador, Ms. Von Teese will be serving up not only some R-rated sashays, but also Cointreau cocktails like the enticingly named “The Corset”—we feel tightly squeezed already. Drag king (yes, they exist) Murray Hill will M.C., and special guests include flamboyant personalities with monikers like Dirty Martini, Catherine D’Lish, Perle Noir and Lada Nikolska.

Gramercy Theatre, 127 East 23rd Street, (212) 614-6932, 7:30pm, standing-room tickets $52.50.
