Bootleg Theater Presents David J's Thrilling New Play Opening Tonight

David J (Bauhaus/Love and Rockets) premieres a provocative new take on the unsolved murder of Elizabeth Short, better known as the Black Dahlia on Thursday, September 8, 2011 at the Bootleg Theater. Performances run every Thursday, Friday and Saturday through October 1.  Curtain time is at 7:30 PM.

The Chanteuse and the Devil’s Muse focuses on the connection actress and jazz singer Madi Comfort had to the Black Dahlia case. A regular in the Hollywood scene, Madi was connected to major players like Duke Ellington, who wrote the classic “Satin Doll” about the young singer. She and Elizabeth had traveled in some of the same circles.

Find out if Madi holds the key to unlocking the true identity of the Black Dahlia murderer in The Chanteuse and the Devil’s Muse.
