Verity Germaine grew up in the theater and sauntered sideways to burlesque over five years ago, where she continues to blur the lines between art forms because genre purity is boring. Seattle's Dirty Darling pulls from jazz age shimmies to glittery pop rock, ancient myth to modern science fiction, to create bewitching, powerful, and sometimes dangerous stories on stage. The love-child of Debbie Reynolds, Emma Peel, and a muppet, this tenacious tease will flirt herself into your heart and slow-burn herself into your memory.

**Verity asks that if you enjoyed this reading, go and tip your favorite sex worker right now!
