In 2017, we debuted our biggest-to-date undertaking with Decadent: 100 Years of Burlesque, a journey through the 20th and 21st centuries via burlesque. Each performer embodied a different decade, from the Roaring Twenties to the Swinging Sixties to the Naughty Aughties. After our sold-out show at NYC’s Triad Theater, we collaborated with Boston’s Elsa Riot and other friends to bring Decadent to Somerville’s Rockwell theater, using local performers. We are planning to bring Decadent on the road again in 2019, to Vermont in May or June, so stay tuned!
Thanks to everyone who came out to The Rockwell on Saturday, October 7 and to the Triad on Saturday, April 22! Both shows were a huge success! Here are some April photos!
