Sugar Shack Burlesque Announces First Production in Virginia

The New York based burlesque company, Sugar Shack Burlesque, announces it's first show in Richmond, Virginia. On March 14th at Gallery 5, Sugar Shack Burlesque will bring together the burlesque talents of both NY and VA in "Cole Porter:In the Flesh". In this cheeky tribute to one of America's best composers, Sugar Shack will bring you an evening of dancing, singing,and innuendo.

Already a staple in NYC and San Francisco, Sugar Shack has expanded in the last year to include monthly productions in the Berkshires of Massachusetts and the Palace of Wonders in Washington Dc. Last Summer, co-founder and producer Miss RunAround Sue brought burlesque to the Hamptons with a weekly show at the beautiful Sole East. Later this march, Sugar Shack has the honor of opening the International Film Festival in Bermuda. But before these ladies head down to the tropics, they'll be bringing the cheeky experience of burlesque to Gallery 5 with their Cole Porter Tribute.

Last month, Miss RunAround Sue (through her burlesque non-profit - Bleeding Hearts Burlesque) co-produced a similarly themed show at the Living Theatre in Manhattan. The Village Voice captured the show nicely. To see the slide show from the Voice, please direct your browser here:

Sugar Shack Burlesque hopes to develop this production further this summer with a large scale production complete with a live orchestra at one of Richmond's most beautiful landmarks.

Stay tuned for more details. If you'd like more information, please don't hesitate to contact me.
