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.)

Brace yourselves: Burlesque is Coming!

I am incredibly thrilled to be performing my Lyanna Stark fan theory act as part of Burlesque is Coming, a burlesque/sideshow/comedy tour produced by Blacklist Burlesque (Richmond, VA) and Glit-O-Rama Productions (Washington, DC).  The tour is a tribute to the Song of Ice and Fire series by George R.R. Martin.  For those of you who aren’t fantasy readers, it’s the series on which HBO’s hit show Game of Thrones is based.  We have been officially endorsed by George R.R. Martin, and our tour takes us all over the East Coast, down south, into the southwest to Mr. Martin’s theatre in Santa Fe, up through the Midwest, and back to Richmond, VA to close out the tour.  We’re making a documentary of our journey to Mr. Martin, and you can find out more about it and lend your support to our project at our IndieGoGo campaign, where all perks over $50 now come with our exclusive, not-available-in-stores, Game of Thrones and burlesque-themed Cards Against Humanity expansion pack: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/a-burlesque-journey-to-george-r-r-martin
