Jo Weldon Presents: CATHOUSE [NSFW]

Coney Island is a magical place offering all sorts of entertainment. Families can enjoy the beach, the boardwalk and amusement park’s rides and games. They can burn off a hot summer afternoon with wholesome fun at the aquarium or the ballpark.

More adventurous visitors to Coney looking for wilder diversions won’t be disappointed either. Options include dozens of watering holes, the famous side show and performances by talented people and attractive people wearing very little clothing.

Every Friday and Saturday night this summer, Coney Island hosts Burlesque At The Beach, a self described old school “girlie revue.” That’s tantalizing enough. On Friday, August 3, New York School of Burlesque headmistress Jo Weldon celebrated her birthday—and the release of her book, Fierce: The History of Leopard Print—by throwing CATHOUSE. As you’ll see, it was a purr-fect night for photographer Jeanette D. Moses to capture the action in photos.
