Seriously Though

November 11, 2014

A mixed bag of comedy, burlesque, theater, and social justice-ing.
There will be laughs, there will be tits, there will be tears, and one day, justice. Come join award-winning and critically-acclaimed Una, Morgan, Julia, and Michi for a very special one-night-only never-again cabaret. You’ve been asking, and they’ve been evasive, but it’s finally here: sisters in real life and sisters of the road, they will awe you with a taste of their solo work in dance, burlesque, comedy, storytelling, and theater. Sexy-funny-sad, given where you are, this is where you want to be, seriously.
