As we slog through these last few weeks of winter, I’ve got a couple of things coming up that I am supremely excited about!  In addition to all of these fantastic shows, I’m pleased to announce that my Septa Unella act has been selected for the 2017 Nerdlesque Festival in New York City April 28th – 30th!  From the website:

“Created in 2014, this festival showcases the best in nerdlesque from across the planet! As the popularity of nerd-friendly burlesque and cabaret rises daily, this festival aims to encourage and foster the development of nerdlesque as an art form and a community.”

Sweet!

Also, after taking a hiatus through 2016, my House of Sweetbottom classic burlesque and live music show returns to the Black Cat on May 19th and December 1st!  I am so excited about the talent I’m bringing to DC for this show, and I hope you’ll join us for one or both!

Cheers,

Cherie

Now that 2016 is behind us at last, I am ready to start 2017 off right!  I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the cast of Astro Pop Events’ Elvis’ Birthday Fight Club this year.  I have been a huge fan of this show, and of Astro Pop Events in general, for years, and I can’t even tell you how ecstatic and honored I am to be a part of EBFC!  Two words: dream gig!  If you haven’t seen EBFC, now in its seventh iteration, you’re in for a treat.  This knock-out production features seven elaborately staged bouts, Elvis-themed burlesque, and below-the-belt commentary from co-hosts “Elvis” and “Kittie Glitter.”

But that’s not all: I’m performing in a brand new burlesque revue in Annapolis, Maryland, co-producing and performing in a burlesque and variety tribute to the Addams Family, and joining Blacklist Burlesque in Richmond for a Queen tribute.  All in the first couple weeks of the year!  Later in the month (on Inauguration Day, no less!), Naked Girls Reading returns with the ever-popular January erotica show.  Beautiful naked women reading erotica on stage?  Whew!  Let’s get into the details, shall we?
