Missing Game of Thrones while it’s on hiatus?  Fear not, gentle viewers!  I give you not one, not two, but THREE chances for your GoT fix, in three different cities this summer!  You can catch my Lyanna Stark and Septa Unella acts in Baltimore in June and DC in July, plus Septa is making a special appearance in the City of Brotherly Love in July for The Philadelphia Burlesque Festival!  Ding ding shame!

And for more weird, wacky fun, I’m thrilled to be working with Astro Pop Events again for America the Game Show in DC and Baltimore in July.  Trivia, games, naked moments in history, and more politically-charged humor than you can shake a…something you can shake at!  Your booty?  I don’t know.  Shake whatever ya wanna shake!

Whedonism VII: Evil Puppet Hijinks

WhedonismFlyer_Web

The Evil League of Ecdysiasts’ annual Joss Whedon-themed burlesque and variety show is back for 2018, with a new venue and an incredible cast from across the country, including Vox Fabuli Puppets from Seattle, Washington, headlining as Puppet Joss.  We Whedon fans joke about how Joss breaks our hearts on the regular…what if the characters could talk back and let us know how they feel about what happens to them?  That’s the premise behind Whedonism VII: Wronged By Whedon.  See Wash, the First Slayer, Black Widow, and more Whedon favorites, June 1st at State Theatre!  More info and ticket link below.  (Flyer by Brit Austin Illustration, photo of Vox Fabuli Puppets by Jules Doyle.)

Dark Side Bar DC Extended!

Happy New Year!

For my first burlesque show of the year, I get to do one of my very favorite things–dancing to a live band!  Baltimore, see you this Sunday, January 21st with Twisted Knickers Burlesque and the Foggy Bottom Whomp Stompers!

If you haven’t heard, Dark Side Bar DC has been extended through February 18th, so you have a few more weeks to don your finest Star Wars cosplay and join us!

At Naked Girls Reading DC, it’s time for our wildly popular annual erotica show.  This show is always a crowd-pleaser and generally sells out, so don’t wait to get your tickets!

I’m also delighted to return to DC Distiller’s Festival.  If you like spirits and all things Prohibition-era, this is your kind of party.  Get dressed up in your best 20’s-inspired fashions and join us for craft cocktails, live music, and burlesque!

Lots of exciting collaborations in the works for 2018…let’s do this!
