Evelyn Tensions

Evelyn Tensions as Mother Ginger

Evelyn Tensions snuck into the Chicago burlesque scene in 2013 and seems to have gotten away with it so far. Originally from Colorado, she holds a BFA degree in acting. Her burlesque debut was at Gorilla Tango Burlesque, where she was able to indulge her nerdy side. After receiving some training from both Vaudezilla and Studio L’amour, she has since performed all over Chicago, including Menage-A-Ha, Heels over Head, and Bad Taste. Her acts have also been featured in the Windy City Burlesque Festival, the Philadelphia Burlesque Festival, and White Elephant Burlesque in New York. To her ongoing dismay, her acts are largely known for being highly conceptual, joyfully kitsch, and complete logistical nightmares.
