DR. LUCKY’S BLUE REVUE brings a night of enchantment to the land of enchantment for one night only!
DR. LUCKY’S BLUE REVUE is a grown-up variety show featuring burlesque, circus & variety arts, belly dance, drag, comedy, and live music at the historic Civic Auditorium in Truth or Consequences, NM. Perfect for couples, a girls night out, or anyone who wants to enjoy a fun evening of entertainment. Featuring a live band, local and regional vendors, a bar, a full show, and a night you will never forget.
Popularized in 1868 by Lydia Thompson & The British Blondes, burlesque parodied classic plays, popular mores, and gender roles alike. Today, burlesque retains that spirit of poking fun at social conventions, all wrapped up in a package of blue humor and glamorous excess.
DR. LUCKY’S BLUE REVUE features an incredible line up of world-class talent from across the country. Starring award-winning circus artist and burlesque star, TRIXIE LITTLE (Los Angeles, CA). Hosted by “Burlesque Expert” (NY1 & Big Think) & “Big Bad Bold Drag Queen” (Bust Magazine) DR. LUCKY (New York City). Featuring additional talent and vendors from El Paso, Albuquerque, Sante Fe, Las Cruces, Truth or Consequences, and throughout the Sierra County Region.
10% (up to $500) of the ticket sales will be donated to a local not-for-profit organization that serves the Truth or Consequences community.
