Goodbye February, Hello Spring?!

February is too short! But I feel like it just means that spring is around the corner. I’m wrapping up this month with a night of cabaret at The Darling Chicago, then kicking off March in Indianapolis at FrontRow Paul’s Burlesque Bonanaza! March is pretty booked as we lead up to the 8th annual Jeezy’s Juke Joint: A Black Burly-Q March 14th-16th, but I’m also adding some new-to-me shows around Chicago. Check it out!

Wed 2/27 – 8pm – The Darling Chicago
Sat 3/2 INDIANAPOLIS – 8pm – FrontRow Paul’s Burlesque Bonanza
Sun 3/3 – 3pm – Sunday Social at Meeting House Tavern *NEW!
Tue 3/5 – 9pm – Fat Tuesday at Ina Mae Tavern
Wed 3/6 – 8pm – Bad Taste at Charnel House *NEW!
Thu 3/7 – 9pm – Mardi Gras Unbridled at Untitled

In addition to performing I’m also in the thick of it raising money for Jeezy’s Juke Joint! This week we just reached over 50% of our $5000 goal and we have a couple of weeks left! If you can spare a dollar throw it our way. And if you can’t, sharing and spreading the word is FREE! Help us make this years “family reunion of burlesque” the most magical one yet. We can’t wait to give all of our new and returning guests this experience. We will see you there!
