This show is a continuation of the Book Club Burlesque Variety Show Series that has been running in NYC. This will be the 7th show in the series, the past books have been Lolita, Valley of the Dolls, The Scarlet Letter, Archie Comic Books, The Collected Tales of the Brothers Grimm, Less than Zero, and Siddhartha (upcoming July, NYC) Produced by Inbred Hybrid Collective and MIX NYC.

Book Club Burlesques are installation and performance collaborations inspired by works of literature; a vaudeville-style variety show with burlesque, circus, clown, specialty acts, an outrageous interactive ensemble and more.
The purpose is to bring back the ‘variety show’ format as well as to expose neo-variety performance artists.
