Decadent Photos!

Finally! Here are some photos from Decadent: 100 Years of Burlesque. From Dandy Dillinger’s 1920s showgirl fabulosity to Candy Applebottom’s 2010s tribute to staying connected, we traveled through time on Saturday, April 22 and never looked back. Thanks to everyone who came out to The Triad and made the voyage so fantastic.

1920s

Dandy Dillinger kicks us off with an ethereal number reminiscent of a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis.

The last eighty years have flown by in a blur, have they not? It’s hard to believe we are already in the ’00s. (Did anyone ever come up with a good name for this decade? The aughties? The double goose eggs? Anyone? Bueller?)

In any case, we are super excited to welcome back one of our favorite performers, Bad Apple Boylesque’s Twinky Boots, who will represent the ’00s in Decadent: 100 Years of Burlesque. This voyeuristic voyage from the 1920s to the 2010s will be happening in LESS THAN TWO WEEKS (OMG!).

We’ve spoken to Twinky on a number of occasions, which you can read about here, here and here.

Twinky first dipped his toe into burlesque as a performer with Broadway Bares, an annual charity event to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, and we are very proud to share the stage with him again. Come see him take on the 2000s on April 22.

AND! For a limited time, you can buy one ticket and get the second half-off with promo BOGO50. No limit (as long as you buy in twos), so get one for everyone you know!
