#BeaAstralDame on Tour
After an exceptional run in Portland, Oregon we are looking to take the show to other cities. We’re currently working on Philly, Boston, Nashville and Washington D.C. If you have any leads on these or other cities, please email BeaArthurAstralDame@gmail.com. We are typically looking at smaller venues, 100 seats or less, that have a piano (though track capabilities are a possibility), a simple light and sound plot, two mics and a technician.
Love you all and can’t wait to Bea in your town!
