Performers to the Rescue: Unsung Hera

Performers to the Rescue: Unsung Hera

We’re excited to welcome Unsung Hera back to perform with us on February 18. This sassy songstress charmed audiences in our Halloween and holiday shows and now her awesome voice and luminous presence will grace the stage at the Met Room for Unleashed: Pilots, Puppies and Pasties.

Unsung Hera

As you may know, this show is aimed at raising money and awareness for Pilots to the Rescue, an organization that saves animals from euthanasia. We asked some of the performers to share their rescue stories.

Unsung Hera writes:

Attached is a pic of my two childhood dogs with me, both rescues.

A little about them: Princess was on her last day at the pound when she became my family’s favorite member when I was five. In eighth grade, Zoey came for a trial stay. My loyalties were with Princess, so I protested. But by the end of the weekend, there was no way Zoey was going back. She would never be thrown against a wall after a bad day at work again.
Princess was the sweetest soul who ever lived. She wagged her whole body when she was happy. Zoey knew that every person she met loved her, and would climb onto anybody’s lap to be pet. She also knew that people loved her even MORE in clothes, so she LOVED wearing her little pink dress.

Come see this dog-lover and the rest of the sexy lineup on Saturday, February 18 at the Metropolitan Room.

Super Bowl Sweepstakes – Win Tickets to a Burlesque Show

Super Bowl Sweepstakes – Win Tickets to a Burlesque Show

**Update** Congrats to Annmarie Aiello of Oak Ridge, NJ! You are a winnah! See you soon.

Hello friends! We are less than a week from Super Bowl LI, in which the New England Patriots will take on the Atlanta Falcons. Tom Brady vs. … some guy who isn’t Tom Brady?

Ok, I googled. It’s this guy. Matt Ryan.
But hi Tom!

We thought we’d celebrate by giving away some tickets.

But fear not, non-football fans. You don’t have to be a Pats fan or a Falcons fan to participate. This is food-related. Cakeballs, to be exact. Delicious Cakeballs baked by our own Luscious Lane of Auntie Liana’s.

The winner gets two tickets to one of our shows AND a sampler of the winning Cakeball. Amazing! All you have to do is vote below and you’ll be entered to win.


On Monday, we will randomly pick a winner from the corresponding winning team. For example, if you picked Peach Chardonnay, and Atlanta wins, you could be a winner!

This contest will run until midnight (ET) on game day (Sunday, Feb 5) so hurry and enter. (One entry per person, please.)

Thanks so much and we’ll see you on the gridiron. Er, Flatiron?

xoxo,
HK

About the Cakeballs:

I do declare, that Peach Chardonnay looks dee-licious!

 

 

Peach Chardonnay: Peach chardonnay cake mixed with vanilla icing, dipped in white chocolate, topped with freeze dried peach.

 

 

 

 

Hold my Dunk’s ’cause Boston Cream looks wicked pissa!

 

 

Boston Cream: Yellow cake mixed with vanilla icing, stuffed with Bavarian cream, dipped in semi-sweet chocolate, topped with yellow and white sprinkles.

 

 

 

 

Oy vey, the small print:

No Purchase necessary. One entry per person. Sweepstakes closes at midnight ET on Sunday, Feb. 5, 2017. One winner will be chosen at random on Monday, Feb. 6, 2017, from voters who picked the corresponding winning team. (For example, if you picked Peach Chardonnay, and the Atlanta Falcons win, you will be eligible to win. Likewise, if you pick Boston Cream, and New England wins you will be eligible to win.) Winner will be notified by email provided. Contest is open to U.S. residents 21 and over, who are willing to travel to NYC between now and Dec. 31, 2017 for one of LFF’s shows (tentative show dates: 2/18/17; 4/22/17; 10/21/17; 12/9/17).

Okay, we’re not heading for the Great White Way just yet, but we WERE listed on Broadway World’s website. That’s pretty exciting, no?

Our next show, on Feb. 18, will benefit Pilots to the Rescue, an org that saves pets from euthanasia.

This will be a fun night, because not only will you get to see the sexy and sassy burlesque and boylesque you’re used to, but we will also have singers, glass eaters and a sword swallower (not a euphemism!). It’s going to be the best night ever!

So hurry and buy tickets now because space is limited.

Yay! We can’t wait to see you on the 18th!
