My trip to Chicago was nothing short of amazing, as I was blessed with the opportunity to join some incredible talent at The Naughty Little Cabaret! When I first shuffled in with my showgirl gear, I could feel the energy in the room right away. Dancers were stretching on stage, performers were getting themselves all dolled and dragged up backstage, and out pops Pup gathering performers for a quick last minute rehearsal. That Pup! The most adorably handsome pack leader there is!
I was instantly star struck being backstage with performers like Jett Adore, Shea Coulee, and Ray Gunn, but my nerves were calmed quite quickly by the feeling of community and support. Everyone seemed just as excited to see me as I was to see them!
Once I hit the stage, the audience welcomed me just as wonderfully. I could tell they were having the time of their lives, which really is the single most important thing a performer wants to feel when taking the stage.
The show ran flawlessly showcasing group numbers, drag performance, pole, and burlesque… a true variety show!
The most stand out performance, oh goodness I almost died, was the Godiva Brothers. Ray Gunn and Anghell did an incredibly sexy pole duet that left everyone, including myself, wish they had brought a clean change of undies. Jaw dropping!
I couldn’t have had a more genuinely fun experience than the one I had with The Naught Little Cabaret. I wish I could take every performer home with me in my pocket! I can’t wait to return!
