Shan de Leers as Wonder Woman


Before the Lakewood Theater closes its doors, join Viva Dallas Burlesque for DC versus Marvel, an epic battle of tongue-in-cheek comic book-themed burlesque performances. Who will win the battle at the largest burlesque show in Texas? Catwoman or Storm? Spider-Man or Wonder Woman?

The show will feature local favorites like Courtney Crave, Donna Denise, Scarlette Switches and others, as well as headliner Shan de Leers from Nashville.

Shoshana Portnoy, the show’s producer, is excited the group is going out with a bang at their final monthly show at the historic theater.

“We’re saddened by the news of the closing of such a beautiful historic venue that has been our home for so long,” she said. But the group will have a new home to be announced soon.

Doors open at 8 p.m. and curtain is at 9 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 2 at Lakewood Theater, 1825 Abrams Road. $20. Tickets are available by visiting Must be 18 years or older to attend. Advance ticket purchase is strongly recommended.
