For our very first edition of Crater Conversations we got in touch with Morgan McKee and Lauren Pileggi of Sudbury Burlesque! They’ve been working hard preparing for Monster’s Ball 3: Stripped to the Bone October 27th and 28th at the Grand and if last year’s show is any indication this one is sure to be a sell out! Monster’s Ball 2 sold a record breaking 1,100 tickets and packed the Grand for two straight nights of sometimes scary (but always seductive) performances from Sudbury Burlesque troupe members and out of town guests like honorary Nickelhead Kitty Vin Evil. We specifically were interest in sitting down with Morgan and Lauren as they are coming from very opposite ends of their burlesque journey. Morgan also know as Honey Rider has been with the troupe five years now and has seen the company grow from small 60 capacity shows a Fromagerie Elgin to sold out performances at the Steelworkers Hall and the Grand. Lauren a former competitive dancer has given herself the name of Katrina Cashmere and after assisting in the last few Sudbury Burlesque events she’s finally decided to take the stage. Listen in as we peak behind the curtain of Monster’s Ball 3: Stripped to the Bone! Listen here.
