Sugar and spice, and all things nice… and naughty make up a variety spectacular coming to Wellington. The Menagerie Deluxe combines burlesque, circus acts, opera singers, jazz vocalists, drag queens, and comedians in a show that celebrates the weird and wonderful. Producer Rachel Rouge discuses vaudeville, starting small, and how her own colorful past has helped bring the show to life.
