One Ormond Beach resident is bringing a burlesque revue to downtown Daytona Beach.

Greg Adkins, writer and producer of the revue, titled "Seduction: A History of Burlesque," said in an announcement that bringing this show to 176 N. Beach St. — a space previously occupied by The Coliseum nightclub and most recently, The Daytona Arcade Museum — "has been a long time in coming."

“The fact that we’re able to do it at such an exciting time for downtown feels even more special," said Adkins in the announcement. "There’s definitely a buzz happening down here.”

The burlesque revue will chronicle the evolution of burlesque from its origin to present day. It will be held at 8 p.m. on three nights this week: Thursday, Aug. 4; Friday, Aug. 5; and Saturday, Aug. 6. The revue will run about an hour and 15 minutes, and tickets cost $25. They may be purchased at the theater box office. 

"We’re thrilled to see an event in that space,” says Megan Duran, owner of nearby Madeline’s Wine Bar. “Anything that brings people downtown is a positive step.”

The owners of Farm to Fit Scratch Kitchen will be extending their hours during the three-night run of Seduction, and will close around 8 p.m.

“We’ve already had people call to make reservations for those three nights,” said Brady Privat, co-owner of Farm to Fit.
