Share this event:

Winner of the 2015 Brassy Award for Innovation and Creativity in Burlesque Production!

Storyville Rising is an immersive cabaret aimed at recreating the feeling and multi-layered experience of the Crescent City's (in)famous red light district. Audience members are invited into an evocation of one of The District's sporting houses and treated to a spectacle of burlesque, sideshow, cirque, and song, where they will be able to interact with various denizens of the area - prostitutes, johns, doctors and midwives, and, of course, madames, throughout the evening. Through the acts performed by some of the most lauded names in the burlesque and vaudeville revival we will explore issues of race, gender, power, sex, and more. Storyville Rising is a truly unique experience - as seductive as it is subversive, as intellectually stimulating as it is titillating. It is an experience that is sure to remain with you long after you've left it's embrace.
