Live Mori Productions produces burlesque experiences simply to die for in and around downtown Des Moines, Iowa.

About Live Mori Productions

In April of 2022, Live Mori Productions produced our first ever burlesque experience. Originally a monthly show, Bottega After Dark provided a stage for performers to share their talents in an intimate and creative, non-bar setting. Since then that monthly show has evolved to specialize in the highly interactive, regularly scheduled, 18+ blacklight burlesque show, Bottega After Hours at Bottle & Bottega Des Moines. In addition to these shows, Live Mori Productions produces large scale 21+ productions at Lefty's Live Music year-round featuring local and traveling burlesque entertainment alongside merchandise and games, keeping the energy upbeat, exciting, celebratory, and sexy.

At the start of 2023, Live Mori Productions' founder and owner, Carmella Mori introduced a new kind of burlesque troupe, Cabaret Luster, specializing in classic-inspired burlesque styles for both ticketed public and private events. Cabaret Luster, produced by Live Mori Productions, is available for hire as a troupe for a full-fledged emceed show featuring performances by individual members or as a troupe for individual or group performances in other productions.

Live Mori Productions continues to evolve in order to provide burlesque experiences simply to die for with rotating casts, unique venues, and attention to details. We understand the ins and outs of productions from back stage, on stage, and most importantly, the audience's perspective. We look forward to celebrating burlesque with you at an upcoming Live Mori Production!
