There are a bunch of reasons why I decided to begin doing burlesque and 'The Slaughterhouse Sweethearts' are one of them. They are Boston's Horror Burlesque troupe and their shows are amazing. The costumes, the production value, the creepiness! Each show is a unique sight to be seen and is totally up my alley- my dark scary alley full of monsters with glowing eyes and razor sharp teeth.
I was lucky enough to dance alongside some of the veteran members and get to know them- and then the best thing ever happened....They asked me to join!
Last month The Slaughterhouse Sweethearts announced their newest members: Karin Webb, Allix Mortis, and me!!
My first show as a Slaughterhouse Sweetheart is A Dark Knight in the Asylum which is an immersive show about the Batman villains. Tickets are almost sold out and this show is going to be positively villainous. We've been working really hard and doing tons of research. Some of the costumes are terrifying even in rehearsal!
This weekend, while celebrating Femme Bones's birthday, we re-watched the Batman movies and got up to all kinds of weirdness: Femme Bones shaved Complete Destruction's head, Landis Darling did my devil makeup while sitting in a bathtub with her clothes on, I drank a bunch of wine (OK that's not weird at all, I love wine, mmmm wine)
There are a bunch of guest artists from other Boston troupes like Dewie Decimator from Rogue Burlesque and some of the dudes from Sirlesque (swoon)! This really is a collaborative show of dark nerdiness!
Needless to say, try and check out this show if you can. Whether you're a fan of the Batman or not, you're going to have a good time.
