Desperada: Back to the Ranch will see LA’s favorite cowgirls take the stage once more with two new shows. On Thursday, December 1st and Friday, December 2nd, the most talented performers from LA’s notorious movement community will take you on a seductive journey of good versus evil at the Vermont Hollywood.
We’re all familiar with the Western classics, but they’re just that—classic. What we need is a shiny, unique, and preferably seductive take on the genre. That’s exactly what Desperada is here to deliver.
Using the iconic imagery, locales, and costumes of the Western Hollywood films we all know and love, Desperada blends the cinematic with the thrills of live burlesque and cabaret performance you can’t find anywhere else. The result is a stunning display of world-class female talent — cirque artists, a dance ensemble, cabaret numbers, and more!
The Vermont Hollywood is the perfect space for this bevy of sultry, silver screen sweethearts. Formerly a movie theater, it has since transformed into a state-of-the-art live event space with amenities to provide LA with Broadway-caliber shows.
Desperada is the creation of Fatale Factory, an entertainment production company curated by Tosca Rivola that is also responsible for the cult classic sister show Tarantina. Rivola (pictured below) is a multi-skilled performer herself, and takes pride in putting on these female-forward stage productions.
A debaucherous blend of burlesque, cabaret, and cirque, the heart of Desperada is of course the performers. Tosca Rivola has an incredible eye for showcasing rare specialty talent, and the cast for this show is no exception. From custom aerial apparatuses, to precision whip, to the art of the Roue Cyr, Desperada has it all!
Desperada has officially opened at the Vermont Hollywood, and these two new shows will be some of the best live entertainment in all of Los Angeles. The first show is on December 1st, with a following performance on December 2nd. Both shows will be at 9:00pm. Grab your tickets now and saddle up for the ride of your life!
