Awkward Holiday Party PHOTOS!

On Saturday, December 9, we threw an Awkward Holiday Party at The Triad. Our intrepid guests braved the 3-inch snowmageddon and were rewarded with a super fun evening that included naughty reindeer, naked elves, drag ballet and the placing of legos into some very intimate places. Here are some photos from act one.

Ready for act two? Click HERE. And thanks again to all the performers, our awesome audience and everyone who bought raffle tickets to support Pets for Vets. We raised over $300!

Until next time!

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.

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!

Ohmigod, it’s like, totally the ’80s already! Brush off your shoulder pads and Rubik’s Cube, crank up your boombox and let’s get to know our ’80s lady: Luscious Lane.

1. What is your favorite thing about the 1980s? 
I’m a child of the ’80s and some habits are hard to break! Everything had to match: your shoes, top, socks, scrunchie… I still catch myself doing this today, well, minus the scrunchies! I still love the music and I can count on ’80s music to turn my mood around if I need it.

2. If you could have drinks/dinner with any person from that era, real or fictional, who would it be and why?
Easy, Jake Ryan from Sixteen Candles. But only if he picks me up in his red Porsche.

Michael Schoeffling as Jake Ryan in Sixteen Candles. Call us, Jake!

3. Is there anyone from today you think embodies the idea of the 1980s?
I still think Madonna embodies the ’80s. She helped shape the decade and so many teenage girls like myself, who wore fishnet tops, black rubber bracelets up their arm and wanted to roll around on gondolas in Venice.

Still got it: ’80s It Girl Madonna

Come experience (or relive) the ’80s with Luscious Lane on April 22 at The Triad. Need tickets? Click here!

It’s the ’70s and that means it’s time to do a little dance, make a little love and, obviously, get down tonight. Munroe Lilly is here and wants to get down with you. Won’t you join him?

1. What is your favorite thing about the ’70s?

I love the ’70s for the clothes, hair and the overall vibe. It was about free love, peace, happiness, and fighting war through music and protest. Add in the psychedelic drugs and you have basically the perfect decade.

2. If you could have drinks/dinner with any person from that era, real or fictional, who would it be and why?

Honestly, I would love to have drinks with a lot of people from that decade. ’70s-era Diana Ross, Cher, and Tina turner. Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell, David Bowie. And on and on… they all encompass/ed a specific kind of strength that I identify with and that’s having the courage to do and be exactly who they want to be both on and off the stage. They all were/are so electric as performers and yet were/are complicated people. I see a lot of myself in all of them.

3. Is there anyone from today you think embodies the idea of the ’70s?

My very good friend Lillian! (who happens to be the ‘Lilly’ in Munroe Lilly.) She’s such a gentle spirit. I call her my bohemian goddess. She has a great deal of that specific kind of courage that I admire. She does what she wants and on her terms with an air of beauty, truth, and love.

Come see Munroe Lilly, the “Black diamond: Rare and Beautiful” at the Triad on 4/22. TICKETS!

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.
Some classy ’30s fashion. (To read more about ’30s fashion, click here.)

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!

We are beyond excited for Decadent, our voyage through 100 years of burlesque, on April 22, and we are even more excited to welcome back Dandy Dillinger, who performed with us in our very first show (in 2015!).

Dandy, “burlesque’s ‘man’ about town,” is the perfect choice to represent the 1920s because of her classic, vintage look. She even has the awards to back up her cred, having been voted Miss Art Deco by the Art Deco Society of NY last year.

She is just one of the fabulous performers who will be on hand to send you back in time at the Triad on April 22. Tickets will be on sale soon, so be sure to check back often.
