"Deep into that darkness...dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before."

-Edgar Allen Poe

Dream dreams you've never dared to dream before and venture into the darkness with us as Lacy Productions presents...


A Booklover's Burlesque special edition at the Alberta Rose Theater, where we explore the strange, the mysterious, the creepy, and the unexplained in the sexiest literary way possible, just in time for All Hallow's Eve!

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 three to five minute piece of poetry, fiction (from any genre), memoir, non-fiction, etc, which is then followed by a burlesque performance inspired by the piece.
