I produced a new one-hour show starring the fabulous America's Got Talent finalist Prince Poppycock this winter. I'm very proud to say we've had two sold-out performances so far in Los Angeles and Washington!
The Hedwig-style show is a glam rock opera extravaganza featuring production numbers set to the music of Queen, Puccini, and David Bowie, plus original songs by musical director Kristian Hoffman, songwriter for Klaus Nomi and punk band The Mumps. Choreographer Lux LaCroix - whose work regularly appears on the Grammys and BET awards - also dances in the show.
The show is slated to go on tour in Spring and Summer 2017... please keep an eye for new dates to be posted to my calendar as they are announced!
This spoof of 80's classic Dirty Dancing was produced to promote the new Zagat app. Co-directed by James Mulcahy and Stephanie Paris, the video features several Los Angeles burlesque performers as food items dancing through the hangry hallucinations of a restaurant-goer who foolishly failed to make a reservation.
As someone who loves both creatures with eyes on stalks and dancing along to Patrick Swayze, I felt like I took to the role like a crustacean to water.

Thanks to Mashable and writer Chris Taylor for the lovely article on the "Star Girls" Star Wars homage! The Star Girls show is produced by Los Angeles creative group Devil's Playground, who specialize in burlesque shows with large-scale set design and inventive themes. Check out the full article here, which opens with a rather evocative description of my "Skywalker OG" act: http://mashable.com/2016/02/04/star-girls
I've joined forces again with uber-talented dancer/choreographer Lux LaCroix to bring you BOOTY UNDERGROUND ... a new cabaret featuring "Burlesque, Boylesque + Everything in Between!"
After our successful production run with "Third Tease at Threes" in partnership with LA burlesque institution Monday Night Tease, Lux + I decided to branch out on our own with a new show at a venue that's an LA underground arts institution, Silver Lake's Cavern Club Theater at Casita del Campo. Booty Underground will be a unique blend of top-shelf professional entertainers drawn from an international pool of burlesque; boylesque; cabaret; and variety arts performers.
Shows are currently scheduled for Tuesday January 26th + Tuesday March 8th, and are open to anyone 18+. Doors open at 7:30 PM; shows start promptly at 8:00 and run for approximately one hour with no intermission. Delicious Mexican food + margaritas and inexpensive valet parking are available on-premises ... stay for dinner after the show!
Our debut show is hosted by Calpernia Addams, and features performances by Haute Coque, Tito Bonito, Princess Farhana (aka Pleasant Gehman), Kristina Nekyia and myself + Ms. LaCroix.
Tickets are $15 advance / $20 door. Advance tix are available through the afternoon of the show at http//tiny.cc/BootyJan26.
Cavern Club Theater 1920 Hyperion Ave Los Angeles, CA 90027 in Silver Lake.
