Ever dance with the Devil in the pale moonlight?
Let’s get geeky AND funky with Batman, the Joker, and Prince!
Jump in the way back machine to 1989. A quieter time, when superhero movies were few and far between. That was the year that Batman and the Joker made cinematic history with a gritty Gotham City, as imagined by an up-and-coming film director named Tim Burton. Prince went all in, curating an entire album inspired by the film itself, including sampling dialogue on various tracks.
An epic soundtrack needs an equally epic cast: headlining the show are Iva Handfull from Seattle and Ginger Snaps from Austin, TX, and features PNW luminary Lola Cocquette! The cast also includes Lavish Leone, Viper, Bee Bee Sanchez, Nick Lacy, and the drag, dance, clown experience of FouFouHa Portland!
Prince’s groundbreaking soundtrack to the film will be performed in its entirety and given the full burlesque and drag treatment! This show will have it all Batman, Bruce Wayne, Vicki Vale, and of course the Joker.
Querencia produces theatrical dance performances featuring a mix of styles from jazz to burlesque. Querencia is committed to producing theatrical dance and variety acts to express the diversity of the human experience.

OMFG!!! I absolutely LOOOOOVE this!!!!! Huge Prince, Burlesque and Drag fan here who saw Batman in the theater, Prince in concert and still have this CD on my shelf at home! Got geeky and funky to it just the other day in fact!
Mmmm I wanna dance!
Holy Moly this sounds amazing! Perfect Prince era. Would love to attend and celebrate his birthday this week 💜💜
Sounds amazing. Getting my purple together.
Hollly batDANCE 🦇 💃
Well if this doesn’t sound like the most kick ass time I’ve heard of!! Oh how I’ve missed the Portland nightlife! Dante’s Sundays was my once a month (at least!) go to. Nothing like this down south. I’m home visiting 2 weeks and would love to take my bestie!
Wow. Tough call. After considering Sign O’the Times, Little Red Corvette, Controversy, Sometimes it Snows in April and Nothing Compares to U (written for The Family), I’m going with:
The legacy of Prince continues. Iconic songwriter, outstanding musician and magnificent stage presence.
Sounds and sounds awesome
Partyman! It is a quintessential Prince song.
My girlfriend and I are both huge Prince and Tim Burton fans! And we both also love burlesque and drag shows! This sounds like an epic night that we would never forget!
I absolutely adore so many of these performers and this show is going to be epic!
100% Electric Chair! The live version from SNL is so so dope!
