After 2 years, the Drop Dead Dames are back with their Valentine’s show! Welcome to our exclusive home venue, The Queen’s Hall. There is a raised theatre stage with a plush velvet curtain, assuring that there is no bad seat in the house!
Which act will I bring to the stage? Is your birthday in February …… make sure to let us know and enjoy a special surprise during intermission!
My second favorite month of the year is upon us (the first being July, my birthday month AND the middle of summer, my favorite season!). February means Valentine’s day and for us Drop Dead Dames it means putting together the first big production of the year, our Annual Valentine’s Show, that for the second year in a row is called DYNASTY.
DYNASTY means bringing you the most opulent show of the year! This year, we bring to the Dames court:
a new QUEEN: GINGER VALENTINE (usually at the court of Dita Von Tease)
a new KING: LOU HENRY HOOVER
a BURLESQUE LEGEND: TIFFANY CARTER
MCees of the night will be the hilarious KITTEN N’ LOU
Of course, all the Dames will be there with new tintillating acts and bringing back some fo your favorite acts, sparklier and better!

Summer is my favourite season of the year, even in San Diego where the sun shines pretty much all year around. This summer looks particularly busy and exciting for me and my fellow Dames.
We started off with an amazing 2-weekend show in collaboration with the gorgeous ladies of Pixie Stixx Burlesque Revue. It was a first for the San Diego burlesque scene and it turn out ot be a very successfull production with a battle to the last pasty between the classic style of the Dames vs the neo style of the Pixies. I enjoyed revamping my tribute act to the talented Rita Hayworth in Lady Trinidad with a new super fluffy feather boa and the precious pearl costume made out of pearl strings from my dear friend Sarah Collison’s wedding (great way to celebrate the imminent arrival of her first baby boy in few weeks. Congratulations!). On the second night, I performed a super fun act with my fellow Dame and DDD producer Eva Mae Garnet called “In the Garden”. It has quickly become one of our favorite acts and we will perform it again this summer. Finally, we revamped our Flamingo group act with new over-the-top pink costumes and head pieces constructed by the multi-talented Eva Mae Garnet and we closed the show with a special group perfomance with the Pixies. Too much sass on that stage all at once!
Here is what in store for the rest of summer:
Shimmy, Shake , ‘n Stir
First a special VIP Tiki-themed event at the Cat Eye Club on July 19th at 9pm. There are only 30 tickets available at 40$ so it is a show you do not want to miss.
