The ever-glamorous Ruby Mechant will be on hand to rep the ’30s for Decadent: 100 Years of Burlesque on April 22.
We spoke with her to learn a little about how she connects with her decade.
1. What is your favorite thing about the 1930s?
For sure the fashion. I mean…have you seen the beautiful dresses, hats and gloves? Super classy.
Another thing that fascinates me about that era is the phenomenon where bank robbers were considered celebrities.
2. If you could have drinks/dinner with any person from that era, real or fictional, who would it be and why?
I’m torn between Al Capone, Bonnie and Clyde and Amelia Earhart – I mean Bonnie and Amelia are pretty badass.
3. Is there anyone from today you think embodies the idea of the 30’s ?
I did a little bit of research, but there is no way you can find beauties like Greta Garbo, Rita Hayworth and Bette Davis.
Ruby is just one of the 21st century beauties you will see at The Triad on April 22, so be sure to check back often – ticket info is coming soon!
