"The Death Star Contractor of Burlesque”
Kyle Ward has been turning the lights on, building silly props, pumping the blood splatter machines, and putting out fires for Boston’s burlesque and circus worlds since 2012. Inspired by MacGyver, Dr. Frank ’N’ Furter, and Gandalf, he casts his mad science with style and more than a little moxy. He is thrilled at the chance to add his 5% tech-multiplier to Rogue’s 1000 Sexy Points, and hopes that the full blast of 1050 glittering badabooms doesn’t leave too much of a mess. While Rogue will always feel like home, he has also worked with Geek Girls, the Boston Circus Guild, the Lipstick Criminals, The Slutcracker, and Burlesque Boston.
