House of Hush presents: Femme Fatales March 22, 2019


Seductress, temptress, siren, vamp, man-eater: the Femme Fatale has one aim, and that is to seduce and ultimately bring disaster to any in her path. Our performers bring their most seductive, witchy and bewitching acts to the floor for our March show.

Grab a table for House of Hush Burlesque’s monthly burlesque show at Crash Hotel’s vintage cocktail bar — go back in time to an era of luxurious outfits, cocktails and a night of classic burlesque with Edmonton and Calgary’s top burlesque performers. Styled after a past era of extravagant parties, this is an intimate show without the separation of stage: burlesque artists will be performing mere inches from your seat. If you’re craving glittery costumes, glamour, can-can, or wild gin-soaked revelry – you’ve come to the right place!

STARRING Vancouver’s Ava Lure! While some performers “burst” onto the burlesque scene, Ava Lure’s ascent has resembled more of a high-viscosity ooze of angst and ardour. Performing burlesque since 2010, Ava has graced the stages of Wasabassco Burlesque NYC, the Vancouver International Burlesque Festival, Toronto Burlesque Festival, Edmonton Burlesque Festival, Texas Burlesque Festival, Minneapolis Burlesque Festival, and with Screaming Chicken Theatrical Society, the Burlesque Hall of Fame Weekender. Ava is currently a member of Pandora & The Locksmiths, the Creative Director and Founder of The Crystalline Cabaret, a seasonal feature with Lost Girls Burlesque, and instructor with Screaming Chicken Theatrical Society. Blending theatricality with timeless grace every time she hits the stage, her intoxicating movements lure you into her dream world.

Joined by special guest from North Carolina, Meka La Creme! Performers also include local favorites Scarlett Von Bomb, Violette Coquette and Buddy Bordell. Hosted by the one-and-only LeTabby Lexington.

TICKETS are $26 – $36 per person and include a complimentary feature cocktail. Doors are at 7pm and the show is at 8pm. The show runs just over an hour, with a short intermission in the middle. Burlesque performers will be teasing and dancing all throughout the room. Seating map:

*Note, the Crash Hotel lobby is an intimate venue: there is a limit of 48 seats available per show. Expect to be seated at the bar or at a table with other guests. Want a table to yourself? Purchase a VIP table! Coming alone? Please do! We will seat you at the bar and you’ll get a great view of the show.

This is an 18+ show

Don’t want the party to end? Join us for THE LATE SHOW! Please note that the room will need to be cleared for House of Hush Burlesque’s LATE SHOW at 9:45pm. This is a completely different show and you’re welcome to buy tickets for both shows! For tickets to the LATE SHOW show visit

Nerd Nite #48 Family planning, city planning, and joking March 19, 2019


A genealogist, city planner, and psychologist walk into a theatre. They tell you things you didn’t even want to know: was Elizabeth Warren nuts when she laid claim to indigenous heritage? How are parking minimums shaping Edmonton’s urban form? Can we make a good (or bad) joke out of any of this?

The great news is that these questions and many others will be answered at our March Nerd Nite. You won’t want to miss this one, and the three reasons why (our speakers and their topics!):

Genetic Genealogy: The Joys, Risks, and Follies of Spitting in a Tube – Alyssa Paterson

Zoned Out: How Legalese Shapes the World Around Us – Anne Stevenson

What are you laughing at? A scientific look at the world’s worst jokes – Chris Westbury
