Stage Name

Real Name

Dixie Evans Mary Lee Evans
"The Marilyn Monroe of Burlesque", "The Sensation of the Nation," "Hotter than the Hydrogen Bomb"

        Dixie started dancing as a stripper in the early 1950's. Later Harold Minsky deemed her the "Marilyn Monroe of Burlesque" and her star started to shine brightly as she created a striptease act around the moniker. As Monroe's fame grew, so did Evans. As you can see in the clip on the right she had an uncanny resemblance to Monroe, in this clip she shows how to get into films by use of her feminine ways and the casting couch... wowza!

    When Monroe died so did Dixies Burlesque dance career as a star stripper plus the Burlesque stage was changing to something else besides Burlesque so she retired and later went to help an ailing Jennie Lee at her ranch.

When Lee passed, Dixie took the reigns of Jennie's Burlesque Museum and kept it running, eventually expanding it (it's now in las Vegas). Dixie still makes Burlesque appearances at some Burlesque extravaganzas and holds one or two of her own striptease shows for the Museum. You can catch Dixie on her Facebook page here.
