Yadi Presents "Cry Baby Burlesque!"
Yadi invites guests back in time with this homage to John Waters's bobby soxer-era teen musical, Cry-Baby. The curvaceous cast of high schoolers from opposite—but equally sultry—sides of the tracks includes burlesque regulars Dolly Danger, Cici Stiletto, Tito Bonito, and Angie Cakes. Lili Vonschtupp hosts, and live music by La Cholita and the Kreeps featuring Lil' Mo ensures the stars have something to dance to besides the harmonized whistles of attending barbershop quartets.
Yadi Presents melds traditional burlesque with contemporary source material. Since the company's inception, performers with names like Meowberry Deathly, Lady Josephine, and Dolly Danger have conjured titillating, vaudevillian versions of Night of the Living Dead and Grease, and have even taken on the songs of Johnny Cash. Over the course of a single show, cast members shimmy out of their clothes, shake off their autumn leaves, play characters of opposite genders, and pay tribute to pop culture with equal amounts of kitsch and artistry.
