Indianapolis, IN. – It was a chilly night in Indy but you wouldn’t have noticed if you happened to have a ticket to The Empire Strips Back: A Star Wars Burlesque Parody Sunday evening, April 14th, 2019. Returning for their largest run of shows ever in Australia, U.S. and (for first time ever) Canada; this sizzling hot burlesque parody takes place in an alternative Star Wars universe and no surprise, this coupling meshes well together.

With creative sets featuring beloved Star Wars themes, seductive lighting, and popular music, it is everything you would expect in a burlesque show and more!  Featuring Sexy Stormtroopers, A lady-like Skywalker, some very tempting Twi’leks, and a break-dancing Wookiee, this fun and exciting production is a great evening out with friends! (18+ only though as this show is filled with adult language and content!)

I am a freelance photographer based in Indianapolis, Indiana specializing in concert and event photography. With my childhood love for music and photography plus the added influence from my mother (a Broadway Company Manager) and later from my husband (a live sound engineer) it seemed only natural to combine my passions and pursue my craft more seriously. I have been blessed with great opportunities to shoot fabulous performers and look forward to sharing my work and new adventures with Digital Beat Magazine. Be sure to look for me in the pit at the next show...
