About Gilda’s Club NYC: Gilda’s Club NYC (GCNYC) was founded in 1995 in memory of Gilda Radner, the talented comedian and original cast member of Saturday Night Live who passed away in 1989 from ovarian cancer. GCNYC’s mission is to support, educate and empower cancer patients and their families. A cancer diagnosis can be an extremely isolating experience which triggers many emotions including fear, anger, depression and an overwhelming sense of helplessness. Currently more than 4,200 men, women, teens, and children attend free support groups, educational lectures and workshops at the West Village clubhouse or at hospital partners around NYC. At Gilda’s Club NYC, we believe no one should face cancer alone. or more information about Gilda’s Club NYC, visit http://www.gildasclubnyc.org

Twin Peaks

Pink Room Burlesque’s Twin Peaks: An Invitation to Love. March 6, 2015 Parkside Lounge, NYC.

Hosted by Schaffer the Darklord; Performances by: Amelia Bareparts, Anja Keister, Legs Malone, Miz Margo “The Flying Fox”, Ruby Valentine & Francine “The Lucid Dream” – Petite Renard Kitten. Special appearance by Matt Wolfe

An Invitation to Love: Valentine’s Day might disappoint but, like music, there is always love in the air at The Pink Room Burlesque! If romance fizzles in February, here’s another chance to make it sizzle with more Twin Peaks burlesque! Your life may sometimes feel like a soap opera within a soap opera but at The Pink Room there is only love and other weird, scary shit. On Friday, March 6th, join Deputy Andy and his baby mama Lucy Moran while we discover Agent Cooper’s one true love: DONUTS. One Eyed Jack’s madam “Blackie” leads you down a dark road of sex and drugs while “good ol’ Pete” Martell serves his love of coffee piping hot – and hopefully without a fish in the percolator. The Lady in the Radiator keeps the room steaming hot with some Eraserhead realness and producer, Francine “The Lucid Dream” has some surprises in store as Invitation to Love’s Jade/Emerald.

The Pink Room Burlesque is a tribute to and satire of the works of David Lynch. Since the anniversary of Laura Palmer’s death in February of 2011, Francine and The Pink Room cast have covered everything from Twin Peaks, Fire Walk With Me, Blue Velvet, Wild At Heart, to Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive, Eraserhead & Inland Empire.
