May 4 is bound to become a historical night for burlesque and Shakespeare enthusiasts alike. Toil and Trouble Burlesque is finally premiering their highly anticipated show at the Silverlake Lounge, and tickets are selling like hot cakes!
50 tickets have been pre-sold, according to producer and Queen of all things fierce, Burgundy Kate, and they’re expecting to double that at the door tonight. Some of Hollywood’s biggest names and burlesque fans are expected to attend, and knowing Toil and Trouble’s track record, audiences will be thoroughly satisfied.
“Some are born great, some acheive greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.”
Why Shakespeare, you ask? Toil and Trouble says, “While we all admire the classical renditions of the Bard’s great works, and while we adore the modern movie adaptations (Dicaprio or otherwise) we still can’t help but feel that we can bring a bit more (or less) to the greatest plays, and sonnets, and characters ever written….
“The men and women of Toil and Trouble are made up of some of the greatest burlesque performers in Los Angeles… and, lets face it – when the greatest burlesque performers in Los Angeles team up with the greatest play-write in the history of the english language… only great things can come of it.”
