Burlesque Shakespeare?

Shakespeare goes burlesque February 27 at The Federal NoHo.

We always say and we’ll continue to say: “NoHo is only as great as its people.”

Meet the uber original Toil and Trouble Burlesque who brings the Bard’s words and characters to life with burlesque.

Toil and Trouble Burlesque’s will take the stage at The Federal on Tuesday, February 27 for their first production of 2018: SOUND AND FURY! The show will feature acts performed by some of Shakespeare’s most iconic leading ladies, and will be hosted by none other than sexy William Shakespeare himself. 

Toil and Trouble as founded in 2015 by creative producer Burgundy Kate and is L.A.’s premiere Shakespearean burlesque company.

Why Shakespeare?

“Well, while we all admire the classical renditions of the Bard’s great works, and while we adore the modern movie adaptations (DiCaprio or otherwise) we still can’t help but feel that we can bring a bit more (or less) to the greatest plays, and sonnets, and characters ever written. The men and women of Toil and Trouble are made up of some of the greatest burlesque performers in Los Angeles… and, lets face it — when the greatest burlesque performers in Los Angeles team up with the greatest playwright in the history of the English language… only great things can come of it, right?

“Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.” Come let us thrust some greatness upon you.”
