Second, we're thrilled to have the fabulous Franki Markstone as this year's headlining act! Happy New Year!
Franki Markstone has been a driving force in Florida's Burlesque revival since 2003. Boasting an impressive and extensive list cast and troupes she works with, she has made it a personal goal to constantly evolve her art, and bring as many facets to her own form as possible. Known specifically her love of all things nerdy, geeky and freaky, Franki's signature acts are a constant revolving door of fandom. Ranging from the worlds of Harry Potter and Middle Earth, to DC/marvel and Death Note. She always has something new in the works, and we can't wait to see what she's bringing with her this time!
The 2016 show is in the can! Thank you to Dangrrr Doll and all our wonderful performers, our staff, and to our fabulous, nerdy audience for braving the heat and giving this show 100%. You guys rocked!
Stay tuned for photos and video. And we'll see you next year!
The submissions have been reviewed and the choices made for the 2016 show and what a kickass lineup it is! Stay tuned to this very blog for all the performer announcements. We can hardly wait for you to see this cast of nerds!
