I was honored to be nominated for Best Burlesque Performer in Loungerati‘s Best of Lounge 2012 Awards. Thanks to all of you who voted, I came in very close for first place and received an honorable mention! I am so flattered to even be put in this category with all the amazing burlesque superstars such as Gin Minsky, Angie Pontani & Grace Gotham!
I am truly honored to receive a mention from J.D. Oxblood in Burlesque Beat’s “Sharing of Praises” in this belated Year-End Church Bulletin:
“I must call out the producer Franny Fluffer (now “Francine the Lucid Dream” —ED), who, with her David Lynch burlesque series, has encouraged the creation of new acts, pushing performers to play past the apron and take bigger risks.”
In turn, I must thank all of the incredible performers who have graced The Pink Room stage – without them none of this weird, Lynchian gorgeousness would have been possible. Looking forward to the 2013 season of The Pink Room: David Lynch Burlesque!
I just had the pleasure of doing an interview with Bruce Tantum, Nightlife Editor for Time Out New York. We talked about how I got my start as a performer, The Pink Room Burlesque, David Lynch, Kyle MacLachlan and a whole lot more! Check it out on Time Out’s website! Photo by Bettina May
