"High-octane Texas teasers..." -The Denver Post
The Violet Crown Follies is an ongoing burlesque residency, every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month featuring live music, comedy, drag and other variety performances. The Jigglewatts Burlesque Revue is excited to play in the Spider House Ballroom; a jewel-box of a theatre where floor to ceiling red velvet curtains, an artfully appointed stage, and an aura of old Vaudeville add to the immersive experience. Guests can also look forward to saucy door prizes and goodie bags from Forbidden Fruit boutique.
Founded in 2006, the Jigglewatts Burlesque Revue has been entertaining audiences around the world from North America to Europe to Australia with their re-imaginings of classic burlesque and original forays into the art of neo-burlesque. The troupe features classically trained dancers, vocalists, comedians and entertainers whose brand of burlesque has won them a string of standing ovations among male and female adult audiences of all ages.
"Eye-popping glamour...a burlesque troupe with a racy show that's not to be missed," writes Steven Moser of the Austin Chronicle.
