Shanghai Nighttrain at LUMOS BAR

October 2015-May 2017

Calamity collaborated with cocktail mixologist extraordinaire Orson Salicetti in creating a weekly Saturday late night show at Lumos, the only bar in the US that served 'baijiu' cocktails. 

"Drunken Dragon Nights" at Macao Trading Company

May 2010-November 2014

Truly one of the best underground Monday night events taking place in the "opium den" at Macao Trading Company located in TriBeCa. This monthly Monday event included an hour open bar with world-renowed liquor brands and scintillating burlesque shows hosted and performed by Calamity and her best performers.

"Les Fleurs de Shanghai" at Duane Park

February 2012-April 2013 

Calamity joined forces with Dances of Vice's powerhouse creator Shien Lee in creating this unique cabaret show paying homage to the jazz music and romance of Old Shanghai, featuring Chinese music performed by vocalist Shien Lee.

"The romance and decadence of old Shanghai (or, as it was sometimes called, "the Whore of Asia") come to life at eatery-lounge Duane Park. Calamity Chang, along with guest performers Gal Friday and Jo "Boobs" Weldon, provide the burlesque; live music from the ’20s through the ’50s, featuring Shien Lee on vocals serves as the soundtrack. Sad to say, after a year's run, Les Fleurs is leaving its Duane Park port; stay tuned for more news." - Time Out NY

"Spreading the Curtains" at Coco De Mer

December 2010-February 2011

Calamity earned the honor of being the sole burlesque producer/performer to secure a monthly burlesque event at UK's luxury lingerie & erotic toys boutique Coco De Mer's NYC flagship store in NoLiTa.

Beatles Burlesque

April 2010-December 2011

"The Fab Four and burlesque babes—they go together like…well, we're not sure what. But that doesn't stop Calamity Chang and her burly-Q pals from taking to the Public Assembly stage once a month at this salute to the British Invasion icons. Ticket to Ride (featuring guest vocalist Michael Cunio) supplies the appropriate tuneage; Stormy Leather, Charlie Gunn, Tiny D and Chang herself take part in the onstage antics; and Sydney Sunrise and Marinara Stardust provide additional go-go action. Tonight's shindig is Beatles Burlesque's two-year birthday blowout, and it's also the last edition for a while, as Calamity & Co. put the party on hiatus. If you haven't checked the show out yet, don't miss it." – Time Out NY

"Dim Sum Burlesque" at Chow Bar

November 2009-October 2010

Calamity's first production "Dim Sum Burlesque" in the west village restaurant Chow Bar (now defunct) is a prescient show that showed her interest in being playful with her Chinese heritage and culture.
