Sheila Wolf, the post-gender Überfrau of Berlin Cabaret, a walking piece of art, she blurs the line between male and female, fantasy and reality, queer icon and happily-married-heterosexual-dad-of-a-tween-daughter. It’s hard not to stare at her breasts, especially since they are often entirely visible in the sheer mesh dresses she favors, capped with jeweled nipple pasties. Most women would die to look as perfectly coiffed and glamourous as she does. Every single night.
But Sheila is not just a stunning glamazon and underground luminary, making small talk and sipping Asbach in the corner of a red carpet event. She’s also an internationally renowned burlesque artiste, an incomparable compère, and the illustrious impresario of the most highly anticipated haute varieté in Berlin. In march, the red velvet curtains will part at the Wintergarten for the ninth Vaudeville Variety Revue and Sheila promises it will be more queer and over-the-top beautiful than ever before.
