And now that she’s got it, the show must go on: “I’ve always really wanted to mix that musical-theater side in with burlesque and bring back the variety show,” she says. “We have pieces of that in Denver, but not a true vaudevillian variety show.” To that end, she’s booked juggler Reid Belstock, magician Professor Phelyx, all-girl string band Spinphony, gymnast Eric Pung and more, including lots of local burlesque talent and Rockette-style dancers with sparkly costumes. “It’s dreamy for me as a performer to be able to say, ‘I want to be able to sing “Ain’t No Sunshine” with six girls with pagoda umbrellas in the background,’ and be able to do it!” Hindsley adds.
