A Tale of Two Tirzas Tirza Sues, Burlesque at the Beach takes a Bath
Yes, that is the REAL Tirza above. Tirza Du Val. Tirza traveled with a contraption of pipes and pumps full of wine, and the show was a real corker!
Retro- recreators at "Burlesque at the Beach" on Coney Island thought they could replicate the show with no regard to Tirza's rights. As reported in the New York Post of August 13, 2001, a Chicago lawyer representing Tirza sent a "cease and desist" to the folks who were bringing back the wine bath...Tirza retained the rights to the show! Sorry, hipsters! There is only ONE Tirza, and she is testy!
