Burlesque to Broadway brings back the fun, excitement, gaiety of the Burlesque era as Quinn Lemley brings to life the songs and music of all the characters from that gilded time when Mae West , Sally Rand and Gypsy Rose Lee and others were captivating audiences.

Moving back to the U.S. and New York, Quinn studied at NYU Tisch School of the Arts with interest towards film and television production. When she is not performing, Quinn loves to entertain, produce special events and work on her many projects including Burlesque To Broadway, which is set to begin a national tour following the Lehman Center engagement.
