R. I. P. Dixie Evans!

A note from pal Luke Littell on this sad day-

Today I lost a friend and the world lost a star. Dixie Evans, beloved by millions around the world as "The Marilyn Monroe of Burlesque" passed away peacefully this afternoon, she was 86. Dixie had been looking forward to all the shows planned in her honor as part of Dixie Evans Week coming up at the end of this August. Her spirit was lively and bright until the end. She will be remembered as a generous loving person who always placed others' needs before her own. She had many passions in life but none greater than burlesque history and making it live on for generations to come. Dixie always felt humbled at how many performers considered her an influence, and she loved that her efforts lead to the burlesque revival that is still thriving around the world. More information will come soon about her memorial. We ask that all press inquiries are directed either to: or

Dixie wouldn't want us to morn her departure, instead she would rather we all celebrate her life. We thank you for respecting her friends' and family's privacy at this time.
