WEBurlesque the Podcast #21
The Reigning Queen of New Jersey, Taradise
Viktor Devonne speaks with the charming Taradise the day she returned from the Burlesque Hall of Fame, after closing out the weekender--and shortly after she snatched the crown at the New Jersey Burlesque Festival. Instead of her actually getting some sleep, she indulged us with a talk about her beginnings as a ballet dancer to cabaret vamp, her work with the House of Noire and working with some fierce co-stars, solo burlesque, and her story as a body double for Margot Robbie!
