Fearless Over 40 Presents: The Early Bird Special

Fearless Over 40 was started by Lydia Mandell and Kate Higgins two mental health professionals who met as their burlesque alter egos Vanil LaFrappe and Beelzebabe. Connecting as performers over 40, they bonded over their punk rock pasts, their love of glamour and kitsch, and their desire to redefine beauty and aging on their own terms. Happiness, as we were amazed to discover is Punk As F*ck. Tonight they present: the early bird special, an early night of burlesque featuring performers over 40 (that don't look a day over 25).
