Photos: Burlesque and theater meet in Merry Widow's Artisan Operetta

Led by title performer Merry Widow, Merry Widow's Artisan Operetta features a rotating cast of local burlesque and theatrical talent that performs a variety of experiments, sketches and song-and-dance numbers at the Voodoo Comedy Playhouse on the third Monday of every month.

Photographer Brandon Marshall caught up with the group last night to capture these photos of its most recent performance.
