BURLESQUE THE VOTE!

Presented by Mistress of Musicality
We’re bringing you an evening of freedom, unabashed visibility, unique voices and story though burlesque, dance, and aerial performances. Artists respond to our current political and social climate in a unique collective of works that express frustration and fear, beauty and acceptance, and overall celebrate diversity and humanity. The show is funny, sexy, dramatic, and exciting. Burlesque the Vote urges us to get involved in our community and to vote. A portion of the proceeds will go to the ACLU Texas Chapter, and local organizations. You can register to vote at the show!
