Beyond the bright marquees and dim speakeasy, there is a timeless place where bouncy vaudeville meets soulful sounds and fresh comedy meets the glint of rhinestones. Smoke & Shadows is the Rockwell’s monthly burlesque and variety show that defies decade and genre, each time offering a new mix of performers from near and far.
July 16 has special guest artists in store: Wyl White and Lydia Vengeance return from NYC with stunning musical talents, crooning voices, flowing acrobatics, and delectable striptease. Serena Havok makes her Smoke & Shadows debut with dark and comedic burlesque. And as usual, the executive showgirls Aglam B, Elsa Riot, Jessicalee Skary, and Sindy Katroic have a full night of shenanigans in store.

Doors at 9:00pm
Show at 9:30pm

Still in effect as of June 1, 2022, everyone age 5 and up entering The Rockwell (at 255 Elm Street, Somerville) must show proof of full vaccination. This includes all staff, audience, cast and crew attending and/or performing at The Rockwell.

In addition, we will require all guests to wear masks while with us during performances. This includes hallways, lobby, bar area, restrooms, and once you are seated. You may remove your mask when actively sipping on that tasty beverage from the bar but mask back up once you’re done. We’ll have zero tolerance of noses in public spaces.

Be aware that these guidelines are ever-changing and if anything changes we will be in touch. Let’s all do our part to stop the spread and keep one another healthy. #MaskUP
