Foxy Vermouth is a Brooklyn-based burlesque performer who can be seen throughout the greater New York area. She has been described by J.D. Oxblood of Burlesque Beat as, “…Super hot. Hot in a wistful, teenage daydream kind of way…long-waisted, drawn by Vargas.”
You can see Foxy in a variety of venues, including Duane Park, The Triad Theater, The McKittrick Hotel, Hotel Chantelle, Coney Island USA, The Bowery Poetry Club, The Parkside Lounge, Nurse Bettie, The Player’s Club, and Hell’s Kitchen Lounge.
Foxy had worked with event companies like Underground Eats, A Razor A Shiny Knife, and the New York Society of Illustrators. She has also collaborated creatively with performance groups The Danger and Little Top Circus and Medicine Show.
Foxy had her burlesque debut with the New York School of Burlesque under the guiding hand of Dr. Lucky, PhD. As a burlesque performer, Foxy Vermouth creates a unique early-century aesthetic, drawing her detailed costuming inspiration from Erté, Mucha, and Fritz Lang’s “Metropolis”.
From her Grecian, art nouveau-inspired “Stardust” to the pulp novel bondage-themed blues grind “Serves You Right to Suffer”, Foxy’s acts are always sexy and sensual, with the touch of class and character only a tall redhead can bring. Her glamorous, sometimes-dark stage persona is influenced by the likes of Gloria Swanson, Marlene Dietrich, Ingrid Bergman, Mata Hari, and Lon Chaney.

In addition to burlesque, Foxy Vermouth’s sordid past includes profession training in acting, singing, and modeling. Foxy ‘s stage roles have ranged from Miranda in Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” to Magenta in “The Rocky Horror Show” and Kate in “Dancing at Lughnasa”, a role portrayed onscreen by Meryl Streep. Foxy recently starred in the alien stoner comedy short, “How to Break Up with Your Girlfriend” (directed by Ethan Black) and ”Roadkill: A Love Story”.
Foxy trained as a mezzo-soprano jazz/lyric vocalist for four years and has performed at many private corporate events and fundraisers.
