As of November 2nd, 2010, pasties and thongs are now illegal when worn on stage during a burlesque performance. The city’s sudden crackdown on burlesque/adult entertainment has forced Burlesque Noir to pull out of the Pornotopia : Censored Cirque De Sex show( which has now been canceled). Burlesque Noir is not going to stop performing , just lay low while the City of Albuquerque cools down. This is just a very brief summation of a whole lot of shit that went down.
