Join us for our 3 year celebration of the
most dark and whimsical performances
you can find in Chicago! 3 Years ago, Lady Lennox set off to produce a show in tribute to the masters of whimsy Neil Gaiman and Jim Henson on August 16th, 2016. The show was such a big success the theater asked them to come back again that fall. Ever since she has been producing shows over multiple venues all over Chicago celebrating dark and whimsical nature of performance art. A showcase of burlesque, aerials, drag performances, and variety acts.
This 3 year celebration includes performances from some of Chicago's most well-known performers as well as masterful artists from out of town! Expanding on the original tune of Phantasmagoria this show includes tribute to Tim Burton, Edgar Allan Poe, Through the Looking Glass and more!
Featuring performances by:
From Detroit; Kitty & Eris
From Chicago; Rosie Roche, Kevlar B Lighting, Jean Wildest, Mocha Mocha, Helena Handbasket, Billie Batwing, Foxie La Fleur, Connor Konz, Rosemary Maybe & Stella Cheeks, Jezzibel, and Lady India.
The idea is simple, yet relatively untapped. Phantasmagoria brand of burlesque dance and theatrics creates a whole new atmosphere in which stories are explicitly told through performance.
Based in Chicago, Phantasmagoria has been putting together multiple large-scale shows throughout each year since 2016. New shows added every year! Shows typically premier every 3 to 4 months! Follow us on Facebook and Instagram for continued updates!
