The cherry blossoms are blooming, the crocuses are poking their cute little faces out of the dirt, and the Diversion Burlesk crew is ready to come out of a seasonal affective disorder fueled hibernation with Oh Hell Yeah! Hosted by Holly Shirt and Atomic Ember! What better way to say goodbye to a wet and cold winter and hello to a wet and marginally warmer spring than a burlesque show? These performers have chosen numbers that make them feel powerful, radical, and fierce as all hell, and they’re ready to put on a show that’s bound to leave you saying “HELL YEAH!”
Tickets available on EVENTBRITE
doors at 7:00pm
