Spice Up Valentine's Weekend with Erika Moon's Cabaret Follies at Empire Theatre


  • Courtesy Erika Moon Productions
Having cut her teeth in France, Erika Moon’s take on burlesque is distinctly European, veering away from the solo-centric American burlesque tradition.

Just in time for Valentine’s, Moon’s latest production, Cabaret Follies, makes its debut as the tour launches in San Antonio. Cabaret Follies epitomizes Moon’s unique style, combining burlesque, cabaret, comedy and dance into a variety show that evokes the quintessence of Moulin Rouge with a vaudevillian twist. Moon and her company’s varied repertory include burlesque acts themed on Cleopatra and a blooming flower, performances by Vegas-style showgirls and cancan dancers, as well as surprise guests and variety acts that are sure to impress.

$29.75-$77.75, Fri Feb. 15, 8pm, Charline McCombs Empire Theatre, 228 N. St. Mary’s St., (210) 226-3333,
