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!

Whedonism, AwesomeCon, and Capital Fringe Festival

PosterMA_web.jpg

I know, I know, I’m super late in updating my gig dates for June!  Things have been delightfully crazy, with lots of exciting shows on the horizon.  First up, this year not only marks six years of Whedonism: A Burlesque Tribute to Joss Whedon, but also the 20-year anniversary of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer TV series.  To celebrate, this year’s Whedonism is all Buffy-themed.  We had a great show last weekend at the Black Cat in DC, and this Saturday the Slayers, Watchers, Scoobies, and Big Bads hit the road to the Ottobar in Baltimore.

Next, Naked Girls Reading DC returns to AwesomeCon with the panel we debuted last year, Nerdlesque: Bringing Fandom to the Burlesque Stage, thanks to the hard work of Alice Darling.  We had a full room and extremely positive responses last year, and we’re looking forward to bringing some new guests, including DC performer Buster Britches and Anja Keister from New York City, producer of D20 Burlesque and co-producer of the International Nerdlesque Festival (which I had the honor of performing in this year!).

Then I’m back with Astro Pop Events, the creators of the infamous Elvis’ Birthday Fight Club, for the riotous patriotic romp known as America The Game Show, in both DC and Baltimore the weekend before Independence Day.

Finally, I’m returning to Capital Fringe Festival with Eclectic Mayhem Productions’ modern burlesque reinterpretation of the first surrealist play, Tiresias’ Tits’.  Rehearsals are underway, and believe me when I say this show is completely ridiculous and strangely heartwarming.

Dates and info for these and other shows below!
