They say less is more. Such is also true when it comes to the art of the tease, and no one is as well-versed in stripping down as burlesque vixen Dita Von Teese. The porcelain-skinned, feather-fanning queen (and Michigan native) will team up with some of the best in the biz for a seductive evening that is sure to make you blush.

In addition to a custom striptease soundtrack and over-the-top stage props, Von Teese has upped the ante on her signature cocktail glass act and will debut her most opulent costume to date — a fully crystallized gown featuring a huge Aurora Borealis Swarovski crystal.

Dita Von Teese and the Copper Coupe Burlesque Revue will perform on Thursday, May 10; Doors open at 7:30 p.m.; 2115 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-961-5451;; Tickets start at $35.
