    The Nellie (AKA THANK YOU)

    Named after Nellie Farren, who was one of the leading ladies in Victoria burlesque and music hall (in which Invisible Cabaret derives some of its inspiration). Just like Nellie paved the way for modern-day burlesque, YOU paved the way for US!
    ***

    Anything you have given will help us raise awareness of mental health in our own kooky way! We are so grateful and will send you news, teasers and project updates. HUGE GLITTERY KISSES FOR YOU.

    The Gypsy Rose

    The Bettie

    The Bettie is similar to the Gypsy Rose, but with Bettie you get to see just a liiiitttle bit more. Inspired by Queen of Pin-Up, Bettie Page herself, let us pen you something that has an air of artistry and a modicum of mischief in its smile.

    The Minsky

    The Minsky Brothers knew that two is company, three's a crowd, anywhere between four and forty is a party, and any more than that is probably a raid. We'd like to leave the police to more pressing affairs, so let's you and us meet after the show to say thank you, peaceful-like, see?
