Vintage Mugshots: Old-School Criminals Working The Camera

Working on Rope has got us thinking about true crime and the bizarre attraction the world has to criminals and the supposed “glamour” that surrounds them. While we of course don’t support or encourage crime itself, you’ve gotta admit, some of these vintage mugshots are pretty stylin’. Want one of yourself? Join us for Retro Radio Hour – Suspense! and have one taken in our Mugshot Photobooth!

 

Friends of Bygone – Theatre Inamorata Presents Virgin Burlesque: You Never Forget Your First Time

375265-250The ladies of Theatre Inamorata (Hilary Carroll, Lesley Robertson, Michelle Langille and Tennille Read) have an exciting burlesque performance coming up – we asked Hilary Carroll some questions about their upcoming show, Virgin Burlesque: You Never Forget Your First Time.

1. Tell me about the show – who came up with the concept and what are you hoping to do with it?

It is a cabaret fundraiser, a fun evening of music, comedy, burlesque, silks, clown and more! For us, it is an exciting adventure into the world of Burlesque. I can’t remember exactly who came up with the idea, but it was thrown out amidst a brainstorming session and we all thought it was fabulous. Michelle came up with the name: Virgin Burlesque: You never forget your first time. We though it was a great way to explore themes of sexuality, body image, nudity, sex appeal, and could also be very enticing to a new audience.

2. What has got you most excited about the show?

Seeing the reactions from the audience! I think a lot of our audience will be new to the burlesque world just as we are, but there has been a lot of buzz. That, and seeing our wonderful professional burlesque acts in action, they are sure to blow the crowd away.

3. Any funny anecdotes from rehearsals?

Nothing specific comes to mind…just the fact that we are all practicing stripping in our living rooms 🙂

4. Why should everyone come out and see it?

It is guaranteed to entertain. It will be funny, sexy, musical, and provocative. What more can you ask for?

5. Where and when can we see the show? How about tickets?

June 9th doors at 7pm- Pravda Vodka bar 44 Wellington St E.
You can buy tickets online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/694376 or at the door for 20$
