The Society of Sin Does Shakespeare Burlesque for Fringe Fest
This year The Society of Sin will be a part of New Orleans Fringe Fest at Mag's. We will be performing our Shakespeare burlesque play, A Midsummer Night's Wet Dream, which enjoyed a successful opening this summer at The Shadowbox.

In our version, Lysander and Hermia are a lesbian couple, the

Meet The Society of Sin: A New Orleans Burlesque and Variety Collective
Hello, and welcome to The Society of Sin! We're a troupe of burlesque and variety performers based in New Orleans, Louisiana. The troupe was founded by Xena Zeit-Geist in 2014 after Arkham ASS-ylum: A Batman Burlesque Play, the first show she wrote and directed, sold out every single night we put it on.
