Beyond the bright marquees and dim speakeasy, there is a timeless place where bouncy vaudeville meets soulful sounds and fresh comedy meets the glint of rhinestones. Smoke & Shadows is the Rockwell's monthly burlesque and variety show that defies decade and genre, each time offering a new mix of performers from near and far.
Summer's not over. The heat is still on. This time, Smoke & Shadows has an aggressively alluring cast that will take you on a provocative and intriguing journey from the old-timey soft sounds of the Jazz Age to the explosive feel of the 1970s to the heart-pounding passion of the modern hip hop scene. Experience the wide spectrum of emotion that live entertainment has to offer with our August 7 cast:
*Classic burlesque and drag from professional dancer and model Jolie LaVie
*Glamorous Old Hollywood bump-and-grind from Pearl Buttons
*Dynamic stripper moves and hairography from Jane Doe

*Risque storytelling about sex and identity from comedian Dylan Uscher
