If you’re looking for some photos to spice up your afternoon, you’ve come to the right place. Behold our tantalizing pictures of Tilted Torch‘s production Lion’s Den at Black Cat featuring burlesque, contortion, belly dancing, games, raffles, prizes, and some incredibly sultry moves.

Last Friday one of D.C.’s strongest variety shows to date brought the audience to its knees (as well as feet, via multiple standing ovations). We couldn’t miss catching burlesque favorites like Miss Joule, Malibu, Topher Bousquet, Shortstaxx and more and hope you got to witness their Grade-A show yourself; if you didn’t, check out our photos and stay tuned to Tilted Torch and Palace Productions for more variety shows around town…
