Wicked Ithaca (October 1 and 2, 2010)
 
Wicked Ithaca
Promotional flier for the 3 WEBS shows for Wicked Ithaca
Wicked Ithaca brought WEBS to upstate New York to present a brand new, exclusive concept show and 2 variety shows.

For the primary concept show, WEBS took the theme of the event (the seven deadly sins) to heart and constructed an unholy scene within a glamorous hell, led by the Devil Himself (Viktor Devonne) and the denizens of the underworld.

The Devil Himself gave introduction (although he assumes he needs none), and each sin was given two different interpretations wherein a familiar face entices the participants to embrace their sinful behavior.

— Lust
Lamia Luxuria visited the confessional where a man of the cloth hears all she's done, and is invited to experience some new atrocities. Gretchen Violetta provides some tips in debauchery.

— Envy
Dangrrr Doll plays a forlorn caterpillar that wants to be like the butterlfy, but at what cost? Dolly Shot confronts her former lover, happy at last without with her, and comes to terms with her abandonment.

— Sloth
Holly Ween and Gretchen Violetta are two sides of the same sleepy vixen coin.

—Greed
Madame Jinx steals all she can from a supposed unsuspecting mark, but learns that there is a price to everything. Femme Fae la Butche would give you the dress off her back for a little coin.

— Gluttony
Dolly Shot chows down; Holly Ween pays tribute to a Little Shop.

— Wrath
Dangrrr Doll plays the angry ex-girlfriend. Virus goes ballistic at reality television.

— Pride
Femme Fae la Butche celebrates her freak flag. The Devil Himself indulges in his favorite sin, and inevitable downfall--which leads to the finale where he is taken over by his very community of fallen souls.

The Devil provides an encore indicating perhaps it's all a cycle he's familiar with.
