If you’ve seen a burlesque show in Richmond, then you’re likely familiar with stage kitten Bitsy Buttons and host and musical entertainer Mark Slomski. The lovebirds are tying the knot and, in true vaudevillian style, putting on a bachelor and bachelorette show with performers from across the region, handpicked by the happy couple. The show features the sideshow stylings of Mab Just Mab, storytelling by Sidetracked, Por Cel Ain, the always fabulous Magnolia Jackson Pickett Burnside, Maria Bella, Miss Bliss and plenty of surprises. The host is Buster Britches, who doubles as “Beast Man” and the “Maid of Horrors.” The Mark Slomski/Bitsy Buttons Bachelor and Bachelorette show takes place at Gallery5 on Saturday, July 13, at 9 p.m. $10-$15. bitsyandmark.eventbrite.com.
