Because my life is a performance art work in progress, and dignity is overrated. Local to DC? Come out and join in the shenanigans!
The perfect storm of high femme and lowbrow, I’m the velvet-voiced vamp with the dangerous curves who’s hell on heels. As Diva Darling, I perform in the DC-Baltimore variety scene with neo-burlesque acts and cabaret vocals.
I want to tell you all the stuff that I love in our Midsummer’s Burlesque Dream at Capital Fringe 2016 so that you will understand why you really NEED to come out and play with us, but since this *is* a Midsummer burlesque after all, let me just tease you with some of the reasons why you’ll come out of our show feeling upbeat and happy and energized and generally feeling great about life!
I’ll be reprising my Willow/Tara duet with the lovely and talented Emma Zonn! Join us for what is always a truly exceptional show and celebrate 20 years of the Buffyverse with us.
