A 'Diamond'-studded night of burlesque

Neil Diamond still inspires women to take off their clothes.

On May 27, Brooklyn’s native son is honored through one of the best ways possible — burlesque — in the show “The Jazz Stripper” at Coney Island’s Burlesque at the Beach.

“What better way to celebrate Coney Island than with a show combining two of my deepest and most abiding loves — burlesque and Neil Diamond?” said host and producer Nasty Canasta, who’s had a lifelong appreciation of the man known as “The Jewish Elvis.” “After all, we were both born right here in Brooklyn — and we were both naked at the time!”

The Coney Island extravaganza premiered in Williamsburg in February, 2009; this rare repeat performance will feature old favorites, new surprises, the return of the “Neil Or No Neil” trivia contest, and a special finale tribute to the Lounge Dylan.

Also expect a Diamond-studded night of tassel-twirling tributes to the singer-songwriter, with performances by host Canasta, plus the macabre Creamy Stevens, the exotic Gal Friday, and the quirky Sapphire Jones. From the male front, Bastard Keith and Tigger will be supplying some entertaining boylesque.

The night will be sure to make you a believer.

“The Jazz Stripper” at Burlesque at the Beach [1208 Surf Ave. at W. 12th Street in Coney Island, (718) 372-5159], May 27 at 9 pm. Tickets $10. For info, visit www.SweetAndNastyBurlesque.com.
