It's Raining on Prom Night

And we need your umbrella. We are Les Femmes Fatales, a NYC burlesque production company that's produced more than a dozen shows since 2015. We are seeking your help with our biggest undertaking to date:

HOPELESSLY DEVOTED: A BURLESQUE SINGALONG TRIBUTE TO GREASE

This homage to the greatest high school movie musical of 1978 tells the story of Candy Applebottom, her paramour Twinky Boots, their middle-aged high school friends and the secrets they’re keeping. Can their love survive the drama... the intrigue... the stripping? 

Hosted by Jule Brittannia and featuring Munroe Lilly, Les Femmes Fatales, The Bad Apples and an Ensemble of NYC’s hottest burlesque and boylesque performers, this show answers the question: “Who put the bomp in the bomp bah bomp bah bomp” and then some. 

Come cheer on our heroes, sing along with them and maybe even get hit in the face with a flying poodle skirt! 

The semester starts October 13, 2018 at NYC's Triad Theater! Don't be late for class!

You're the One That We Want

With a cast of 15, multiple costume changes and hours of rehearsals, this project is beyond the scope of anything we’ve done before. The money we’re seeking will help us pay the cast, rent rehearsal space, build set pieces and print the programs (which will include photos, song lyrics and other super fun stuff).  

More about LFF  

LFF is comprised of four sassy showgirls: Luscious Lane, Ruby Mechant, Spicy L’amour and Hellz Kitten, who met in a burlesque performance troupe in the early ‘10s. After dancing with the group for a couple of years, we decided to throw glitter to the wind and form our own company. Since our launch in November 2015, we have produced 14 shows (15 as of July 21, 2018!) and raised more than $3,500 for charity. We also do fundraisers, parties and classes because we want to help everyone find their sparkle!

Love Is a Many Splendored Thing

And so are our rewards. Check them out:

We're such teases...

Stretch Goals...

$2,000 is the “bare” (get it?) minimum we need to set foot on stage; additional funds would elevate this production from awesome to amazeballs. Should we be so fortunate, every extra $500 will unlock a Mystery Gift for all backers above $35. So that’s more cool stuff in your mailbox and more greased lightning for us (and ultimately, you)! Win-win-win.

Born To Hand Jive

A show without performers is like a baby shower without booze: pointless. Meet our cast:

LFF believes in giving back. Since that first show in November 2015, we’ve collected $3,567+ for various charities across NYC and the world:

These are the peeps behind the scenes without whom we'd be stranded at the drive-in.

Risks and challenges

This show was conceived one wine-soaked October night on Luscious Lane’s couch. Once envisioned, it became inevitable. It’s happening no matter what, so there is not a lot of downside. We have ordered the costumes, consulted the choreographers, drafted the script and secured NYC's Triad Theater for October 13, 2018. So mark your calendars, because Grease IS the word.
