After the vampire, Loui, burned down the Theatres Des Vampires in the late 1800’s in England, centuries later a new coven of vampires reformed the “Theatres des Burlesque Vampires” under the name of “American Rose Theater.” It won't be until October 28th, they are finally revealed for what they really are: seductive, sexy, and blood thirsty vampires looking to feed on the mortal blood of their show patrons, that is, if their rivals don't get there first. Are you brave enough to partake in the glorious sights of this show?
Do you love Halloween? Do you love burlesque? Want to have more confidence in your own body?
