“We have weirdos, freaks, lovemakers and even some heartbreakers. We’re going to show some leg and make a shimmy.”
If that doesn’t make you want to snap up a ticket to one of the hottest shows in the Fringe, then read on and be ready to be convinced! Red Light Confidential is a showcase of burlesque, circus, cabaret, music, comedy and magic and is one of the most popular and well known touring variety shows in the country.
Sam About Town chatted recently with producers Kelly Ann Doll and Michael Wheatley.
SAT: The type of acts and experience level of performers in a Red Light Confidential show is so varied and yet you manage to coordinate it into one cohesive show. Could you tell us more about this format that has “newbies rubbing shoulders with seasoned pros”?
RLC: We started as an industry night, we wanted to provide a safe space for performers to try out new acts and for newbies to get a handle on the ropes.
SAT: With such a variety of performers, do you find there is a creative exchange of ideas including mentoring from the more experienced performers and fresh energy and new ideas from the emerging acts?
RLC: Definitely. There are so many connections that have been made from artists meeting and networking at the show over the years and we’ve watched people go from being stage kittens to successful name artists.
