CAST TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!
The Miss Twin Peaks Pageant has been going strong for over 7 years but it’s time to let the boys have a little fun! This will be the second Mister Twin Peaks Pageant hosted by The Pink Room Burlesque. Last year’s Mister Twin Peaks Pageant was packed with David Lynch burlesque fans and we have no doubt this year will be the same! Some of this year’s cast include some good ol’ classics like Special Agent Dale Cooper, but much like David Lynch we like to keep some of our cast a mystery.
The Pink Room Burlesque is a tribute to and satire of the works of David Lynch. Since the anniversary of Laura Palmer’s death in February of 2011, Francine and The Pink Room cast have covered everything from Twin Peaks, Fire Walk With Me, Blue Velvet, Wild At Heart, Lost Highway, Mulholland Drive, Eraserhead & Inland Empire. Francine & The Pink Room were recently featured in Showtime documentary “The Phenomenon” and on ABC’s Nightline along with David Lynch & Kyle MacLachlan. Francine & The Pink Room also starred in the official Showtime pop-up “A Tribute to Twin Peaks” at Brooklyn Bazaar. To say the least, The Pink Room Burlesque is now “Lynch-approved”.

Join us for a Tribute to Twin Peaks
It is happening again. And this time, you’re invited.
To celebrate the heralded return of David Lynch's masterpiece, BBQ Films is teaming up with our friends at Flavorpill to create a Twin Peaks playground both wonderful and strange at Brooklyn Bazaar on Tuesday, May 16.
You’ll be be able to enjoy a damn good cup of coffee at the Double R Diner, explore the mysterious Twin Peaks Lodge, and interact with a variety of quirky — dare we say suspicious — characters from this quaint northwestern town, brought to life by the beauties of The Pink Room Burlesque.
Come in costume to enter our Miss Twin Peaks Pageant; the prizes could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good hot black coffee.
Unlike our usual fare, this experience doesn’t include a screening, but you can catch the new season of Twin Peaks on Showtime, Sunday, May 21.
**RSVP does not guarantee entry. Entry is based on a first-come, first-served basis. We recommend arriving early!**
