Toil and Trouble... was founded in 2015 by creative producer Burgundy Kate, and is Los Angeles' first Shakespearean Burlesque company. Why Shakespeare? Well, while we all admire the classical renditions of the Bard's great works, and while we adore the modern movie adaptations (Dicaprio or otherwise) we still can't help but feel that we can bring a bit more (or less) to the greatest plays, and sonnets, and characters ever written. The men and women of Toil and Trouble are made up of some of the greatest burlesque performers in Los Angeles... and, lets face it- when the greatest burlesque performers in Los Angeles team up with the greatest playwright in the history of the english language... only great things can come of it, right?


"Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them."  

Come let us thrust some greatness upon you.
