REBEL RIOT REVUE PRODUCTIONS
Founded in 2011, Rebel Riot Revue started as a burlesque troupe and has since grown into a production company that oversees the production and booking of burlesque, fire, comedy, dance and drag performers who are seasoned, professional and intensely dedicated. We strive to preserve the art form of classic burlesque and advance the art form of neo burlesque in our variety shows through informed, empowering performance art, glamorous and theatrical performers, and the utmost respect for our audience. Our performers' styles range from elegant to exotic, comedic to classic, modern to marvelous, all while maintaining an air of jaw-dropping joie de vivre and classy charisma. We cordially invite you to join us for an evening of glitz and guffaw that will leave you wanting more!
