The Last Burlesque

Can you take it all off and still keep it together?
That’s the question Pinky Swear Productions is asking in our world premiere production of The Last Burlesque. Developed during several years right here in DC and featuring an innovative mix of theatre, burlesque, and sideshow, the show boasts a scintillating cast that’s sure to make summer audiences sweat… even more than usual.
Join Darcy as she returns to her family’s DC burlesque palace only to find it on the verge of bankruptcy. As she grapples with old friends with their own problems, a boundary-pushing new lover, and a mother struggling to make her proud, will Darcy find what she’s really looking for?
The Last Burlesque took the Capital Fringe Festival by storm! We sold out the largest venue in the festival, garnered rave reviews, and inspired standing ovations!
