Burlesque Classique, founded by veteran burlesque performer and itinerant world-traveling dancer and impresario Lola Rose, returns to Capital Fringe for its third outing with A Midsummer’s Burlesque Dream. This wildly silly romp through the Bard’s magical forest is a whirlwind mashup of the original Shakespearean script, neo-vaudevillian slapstick, sultry singing, and classic burlesque dances ranging from sweetly sassy to downright steamy. Plus, it’s right off the Fringe bar, so you’ll be in the heart of Fringe Central where it already feels like anything could happen!
Get your tickets early– Burlesque Classique’s last two Fringe shows, The Burlesque of Broadway and Vaudevillian Romp, were five-star sellouts that received glowing reviews and extended runs. Ticket sales are already brisk.
I’m thrilled to be playing Titania (again!) and rejoining Lola and castmates Lavender Noire and Karen Beriss from Vaudevillian Romp. I’m also delighted to be reuniting with castmates Eric Cline and my real-life partner Sean Butler from a whole different version of Midsummer, plus working with one of my favorite techies and my personal hero from my show Mirabilia, Ártemis López. And I’m privileged to also be working with some incredibly wonderful and talented new friends, including Nastya Djacov, Vanessa Iorizzo, Bailey Jameson, Queen Nefertittie, Sun King Davis, Laura Vucci, and Emma Zonn.
Come out and play with us at the biggest theater party of the year!
