After a yearlong hiatus, Wild Cherryz Burlesque, the seductive and captivating cabaret troupe, is returning to the stage for the New York City debut of their new burlesque show, "Arcana Lace".

"Arcana Lace," created by DeGennaro and choreographed by Dylan Smith, infuses the themes and music from the 1930's Carnival, combining a live burlesque dance performance with a heartfelt theatrical storyline.

The wise crone details the protagonist's past and present triumphs over her three tormentors: her lover, mother and madame. Once the fortune-teller has revealed the young girl's story, she embarks on a vision of a future, represented by the character "The Singer". Through conquering her troubled past to obtain a successful future, "The Fool" finds, she too has the knowledge of the crone and power over her own fate.
