BOOKLOVER'S BURLESQUE: A Midsummer Night's Tease

(Shakespeare Edition)

Friday, July 29, 2022

Join us for this next Booklover’s Burlesque edition at the Alberta Rose Theater, as we venture beyond this world!

Booklover’s Burlesque is the world’s sexiest literary salon which matches titillating, inspiring, and empowering book readings with burlesque, boylesque, and draglesque performances all in one show!

Professional readers, actors, and/or local authors & writers read aloud a piece of poetry, fiction (from any genre), memoir, non-fiction, etc, which is then followed by a burlesque performance inspired by the piece.

Pray join us merry wanderers of the night for a most bawdy time with the Bard-- a bit of summertime "Shakespeare After Dark" -- as only Booklover's Burlesque can bring!
