Making a production comeback after a fruitful performance schedule in 2011, The Infamous Nina Nightshade is sitting down in her director’s chair once again and breathing new life into Bergamot Burlesque. Although Nightshade is already well known in both Portland and Salem as having an exceptional knack for hand-selecting classic talent, she is outdoing even herself this time. On Friday, January 13th and Saturday, January 14th, both aforementioned cities will be gifted with the opportunity to take in a show headlined by the Venus Of Dance: living legend, Dee Milo.

Miss Nightshade is known within her community for having a distinctive adoration of the early pioneers of her art form. After returning from her own exhilarating performance at the most recent Burlesque Hall Of Fame Weekend, she set to work curating a stunning lineup featuring Dee Milo as the primary enchantment. Now Oregon’s two largest cities are set to be visually pampered as Nightshade’s vision becomes reality.

Show-goers should prepare to enter trance-like states during performances from Hai Fleisch, Charlotte Treuse, Itty Bitty Bang Bang, Bettina May, Gretchen Dances, The Infamous Nina Nightshade herself, and of course Dee Milo. They will be shaken back to reality between the acts, via the charming antics of international emcee Vincent Drambuie.

A special note for non-drinking-aged fans of burlesque: the Salem edition welcomes adults aged eighteen and up! Tickets for both shows can be found at www.brownpapertickets.com, or click on the individual city links below.
