Smoke & Shadows: Burlesque & Variety Show

April 6, 2019

The Rockwell

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.

Say goodbye to winter blues, because our April lineup is hot enough to jump-start spring! Enjoy fierce but playful burlesque from the best of both coasts, plus music and comedy to top off an intercultural mashup of red-hot talent and fiery vibes:

*Hollywood glamour with a nerdy twist from LA’s Sexual Intellectual Caramel Knowledge
*Grounded seduction and electric vibrancy from NYC’s Lady Mabuhay
*Vintage beauty and dynamic hairography from Boston burlesquer Pearl Buttons
*Cutting wit from NYC comic David Spector
*Passionate multicultural pop-soul music from singer/songwriter Avanti Nagral
*The usual shenanigans from devilishly dapper host Sammy Temper and burlesque goofball Elsa Riot
As usual, this show is one night only!
