Bessie Boutté, Terre Rouge Burlesque

Costumer, producer, and prolific performer by night—innovative business executive by day—this girl is the definition of “Do Both.” A native of OKC, she started her performance career in New Orleans. She has headlined and performed in shows across the country and internationally.

As the “Madame of OKC Burlesque,” she founded and produced Oklahoma City’s only Vintage Live Jazz and Burlesque Review, Terre Rouge Speakeasy Burlesque, as well as Oklahoma’s first Nerdlesque production, WEIRDlesque at the historic Tower Theatre, among various other unique concepts. With Terre Rouge Burlesque, Bessie has cultivated a robust local scene by providing space for over 60 unique artists to grow and thrive.
