ABOUT BELLE, BOOK & CANDLE

The most magickal show in Los Angeles, Belle, Book And Candle is run by and for witches.

Produced by Pleasant “Princess Farhana” Gehman and Shana Leilani, professional dancers who are also witches, the show takes it’s name from the popular 1958 film starring Kim Novak as a beatnik sorceress in Greenwich Village.

Acclaimed burlesque performers present shows full of dark glamour, sinister fairy tales, pagan hedonism and supernatural fantasies.The second act always starts with a (real) onstage ritual by a well-known magick practitioner…and the professional psychic readers and healers are hand-picked for their accuracy and will amaze and delight.

DJ Lina Lecaro weaves a musical spell all night conjuring up everything from The Cramps to Stevie Nicks, metal and dark wave, while hexy go-go dancers writhe on stage.

Come early for dinner and divination - sign up to get your fortune told before, during intermission or after the shows. Raffle Prizes courtesy of Panpipes Magickal Marketplace

** VIP tickets include reserved, preferred seating close to the stage, decorated cupcakes for each guest, a fixed magick candle or other witchy swag and, if desired, an onstage photo op.
