BLUE DIME is a pop-up cabaret troupe producing a lowbrow, avant-garde variety sideshow intended to cause laughter with ludicrous acts and bawdy characters. Shows are quirky, funny, zany, old-timey, and provocative.
The troupe includes burlesque performers, actors, magicians, dancers, contortionists, comedians, clowns, singers, musicians, drag kings / queens, and jugglers. Every show is a different combination of acts and runs about 90 minutes with a brief intermission.
BLUE : in vaudeville, “blue envelopes” were filed on those performers who were especially provocative or objectionable
DIME : "dime museums" were a collection of lurid and sensational curiosities, monstrosities, and freaks exhibited for a low price of admission; “a dime piece” is a contemporary reference to an attractive person
