Rolling Stone magazine calls the show "Hot" and the cast a "Comedic A-Team", LA Weekly says the show is "Red Hot" and "Scores more than it's share of belly laughs" while the LA Times calls the show "A Winner"!

PARADOX Media & Vau de Vire proudly present the ninth annual Edwardian Ball Los Angeles, and the spectacular debut of Los Angeles's first-ever Edwardian World's Faire. Born in the darkened hallows of a San Francisco nightclub, this multi-night, multicity, multimedia extravaganza has grown over the past 18 years into an internationally recognized festival of the arts, now presenting a uniquely wonderful Edwardian world with the blessing of the Edward Gorey Charitable Trust.
The Edwardian Ball is an elegant and whimsical celebration of art, live music, riveting theater, fashion, literature, ballroom dancing, DJs, circus, and the beloved creations of the late, great author and illustrator Edward Gorey. Set in a romanticized, gilded and gentile Neo-Victorian and Edwardian era, a gothic and steampunk-tinged distant past intertwines with an elegantly imagined future.
