It was recently announced that the 92nd Street Y is officially closing its downtown venue, where "Meet The Lady" and other fine arts programs have had their homes for years. That means that this Friday's installment, Meet The Lady Is Watching You!

The other acts are a little more deep and interesting than mine, but I'm trying to make them a surprise too. Also, boobies. [more inside]

First up: a tribute to burlesque in cinema (and vice versa). [more inside]
