FIRST SATURDAYS AT THE ROCKWELL
IN DAVIS SQUARE

Beyond the bright marquees and dim speakeasy, there is a timeless place where bouncy vaudeville meets soulful sounds and fresh comedy meets the glint of rhinestones. Smoke & Shadows is the Rockwell’s monthly burlesque and variety show that defies decade and genre, each time offering a new mix of performers from near and far.

Now in its 3rd year, Smoke & Shadows presents the very best live entertainment through a diverse and intersectional lens. Lineups span across all industries, styles, identities, bodies, and cultures to bring excellent performance art and showmanship that breaks boundaries between artists & audience.

 Elsa Riot produces and curates; Sammy Temper hosts.
