Belladonna and Ken Vegas present the seventh annual Raven’s Night, a soirée of dark decadence and ethereal performances, on Saturday, November 3rd, 2018, at the Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia.

Belladonna has been producing her famously fantastic Halloween-themed show in the Washington, DC, area since 2005 and has worked with The DCAC, The Warehouse Theater, and The Sitar Arts Center. She is delighted to return to the Birchmere for the fourth time, to present this latest incarnation of Raven’s Night. Her co-producer is Ken Vegas, founder and director of the DC Kings. Ken has been producing sold-out shows in the DC Metro area since 2000, including the Great Big International Drag King Show at the Black Cat and the 9:30 Club.
