A Whole Buncha Gigs this Fall Y’all

I have quite a few gigs coming up this Fall and I thought I’d finally update the website. Like ya do…

In my backstage life, I am costuming and stage managing some stuff. Dollypalooza went off with nary a hitch and newsflash, I called the show via facebook instant messenger. (It’s Zuckerberg’s world we’re just living in it.) Bevin Brandlandingham, Dara Barlin and the crew raised TEN THOUSAND DOLLARS for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.  Dolly is sending books to kids 0-5 once a month, so they have library of books to cherish and love. Please consider this cause as the season for giving arises…(excuse me, I have something in my eye) I was humbled and honored to work with Bevin again. As she is moving to CA this winter, I must mention her blog so we can all drink from her bountiful fount of wisdom and love. http://queerfatfemme.com/

On stage, I’m also acting, singing and dancing in the coming months. I must say that I am very grateful to have these opportunities in my life. Making a life in showbiz was always my dream—you can blame that on Madonna* and the Muppets—I never forget that I’m a lucky star,that I’m moving right along. It’s hard work, and I am lucky. All you really need is a day job and some supportive friends and family and you can do anything. I guess Kermit was right.

I’ve been working on my writing and storytelling at programs like WRITE QUEER! facilitated by Cecily Schuler at the Bureau (see more below). I’ve also been hitting up Jefferson Bites’ FOREplay: Stories of Sex, Love and Romance at the Delancey. It’s freaky fun. You should do it. Or you should come see me do seven minutes of off the cuff yakking about my sex life. (Whuuuuuuut?)

I’m writing music with guitarist Mike Cobb for our project GUMBO! and we’re doing shows around Brooklyn and playing in Prospect Park. So come out and see us before we all huddle in our caves, light fires and draw on the walls.

And SURPRISE Truffles is back! Just in time for the holidays!

Oh yeah I also had a big birthday, I’m finally 26! Woot! (yep, 26 and I’m sticking to it)

(*btw got to see Madonna’s Rebel Heart Tour!!!! It was awesome and she spanked Anderson Cooper and gave him a banana! Whuuuuuuut?)

Soooo what’s coming up:

Oct 23rd TELL at the LGBTQ center
208 West 13th St.
at the Bureau of General Services Queer Division http://bgsqd.com/


Come join us for TELL an evening of queers telling stories. I did the second ever TELL hosted by my good buddy Drae Campbell last year and I loved it. This month’s theme is Chance. I’m going to do my best not to sing ABBA but I can’t promise anything.

TELL is an evening of story telling from the mouths and minds of queers in NYC hosted by Drae Campbell at the Bureau of General Services—Queer Division since February 2014.

Chance is the theme of the seventeenth installment of TELL. Featuring Miss Poison Ivory, Hana Malia, Camille Atkinson, and Jay Lucero.

I like it #Hawt


It’s June and we finally got what I wanted all winter… Heat, heat and more heat! Bring it on! I know some of you folks are huddling around an air conditioner, but I luuuve the Heat. Down with a/c! Up with temperatures!…. Meanwhile, I’m turning a lasagna. No big deal. #nbd.

Just an update y’all.

I recorded a song with Ron Barba called “You’re So L.A.” a few weeks ago and the track is BOSS! I mean BAUS!! I can’t wait for you to hear it; you’re gonna love it! Ron Barba and I did “Truffles!” together a few months ago and he is a force to be reckoned with. A comedic force. Or a comedic farce. Your call. (Just kidding Ron…)



The weekend of June 13 and 14th, I’m werkin the ticketing gate at the Jazz Age Lawn Party!  I’m SO SO Excited to be an official part of the welcoming committee for this event!  I’ll be all dolled up in the sweltering heat–let’s see how much I like it then?  It’ll be a lot of fun so you should come out to Governor’s Island. It’ll be a day to remember fondly–sun, sand, grass, pretty dresses, dapper suits, the pie contest, Kidland, ancient gramophones, car show, dance lessons and more! How can you miss it?! P.S. Family friendly: watch your mouth, Atkinson!

August 8th I’m doing Les Chanteuses at Branded Saloon in Prospect Heights with Francesca Hoffman and Kim Brule. August 16th is Madge’s birthday, so there is no doubt I will be Madonna-ing that night. Bring out my lace gloves and my crinoline Lola! LOLA!

Because on the 16th…

madonna's birthday


…also in August, I’m doing a much anticipated Civil Rights Movement tribute act with Scarlett Lace at the Cobra Club. The secret word is NinaSimone.The tone is Not Madonna.

I’m also going to sing at more weddings this summer so love is on the breeze. I pray we all feel it. Remember Dorothy, It was there the whole time…

If you’d like to book me at your event or entertainment, wedding or burlesque just shoot me an email at:


Winky face.


Love yoooooooo….

It’s May! It’s May! The lusty month of May!

May is in full bloom! Her daffodils and lilacs beam with the warmth of summer to come. As you might expect from the lateness of this update, things have been rather busy, my way.

I was lucky to do some behind the scenes work on “Truffles!” (music by Jenni Lark, direction by Sonia Carrion) as assistant director, box office and on costumes, as well as my featured part in the show. I love that show, I’m always entertained when we do it. There truly is never a dull moment. We moved the show to the Metropolitan Room and will have new dates coming up, but currently our burgeoning dinner theater show is on hiatus. So, I’ll keep you posted when they go up!

May 1st I went all the way out to The Suffolk Theater to perform with the Adam the Real Man in a Coney Island Burlesque—a thrilling revue and variety show. There was hosting and illusions by Adam the Real Man, go-go and kittening by Zoe Ziegfeld, burlesque by myself, Cheeky Lane and Raquel Reed, and contortion/burlesque by Topher Bousque. It was an amazing show and I was so overjoyed to be in this gorgeous cast. We were reviewed on the front page by Vera Chinese, for the Northforker-Long Island here:

May 3rd I was a contestant in the Shana Farr Cabaret Vocal Competition. I made it to the finalist round but missed winning the prize by that much.  I did have the good fortune of meeting some wonderful people and making beautiful music on the first warm—hot even—day at a street fair on the Upper West Side.

Shana is a lovely woman and an accomplished cabaret star. You should check her out. http://www.shanafarr.com/

At the moment, I am stage managing and costuming “Radiance: the Passion of Marie Curie”. The story of Marie Curie’s (Ewa Wojcik) struggle to isolate radium with her husband Pierre Curie (Gary Kovak). It details a love affair she had with a former student of her husband’s Paul Langevin (Chris Cook) and the scandal stirred up by his wife, Jeanne (Kristen Brody). I urge you to come see this play, which was written by Alan Alda. Direction and lights by Rebecca Kidwell of Swiftly Tilting Theater Project. It’s a stunning little gem, I know you’ll love it. “Radiance” runs May 8th, 9th and 10th at Joria Production on 47th Street in Manhattan. Also starring Tim Magidson (Tourbogie/Tornebladh), Alexandra Perlwitz (Marguerite), and Adam Deremer (Emile Zola)…

Otherwise, I’ve been writing new music, recording and rehearsing new material. I can’t wait to share this work when it’s ready.

I’ll be announcing a new run of shows soon as I get dates settled so stay tuned!

The Long Run

Baby if you’ve ever wondered… I went down the proverbial rabbit hole into the wonder that is TRUFFLES! Yes we’re entering our third month in our dinner theater murder mystery experience. My website has suffered outrageous neglect but the show must go on! Truffles! has extended dates through April so get ye to the box office and purchase a ticket or two! The show has no fourth wall and the audience is onstage nearly as often as the cast. I’m having a great time working on the show as stage manager, costumer and performing as well.

love the personalities

Music from Truffles! by Jenni Lark is available on iTunes here:


halloween with the crevulators

I’ll also be hitting the stage with Mike Cobb and the Crevulators for the sound we call Gumbo, cause it’s a delicious yummy meaty mixture. So come out and check the band.


Muchos besos, Camilla

Turkey Time is Upon Us Once More

Hey Folx,

Wanna get together for some music before the weather turns nasty and you have to deal with *shudder* Relatives? Me. Too. I’m doing a legit piece of theater in grand midtown through January. You should come see Truffles! because it’s dinner theater and you get a three course meal! Not to mention world class entertainment! There’s more burlesque in my schedule and I’ll be performing with Mike Cobb’s band the Crevulators in an act we’re calling GUMBO with me on vox!

Speaking of Gumbo. I’ve just started a little side business making gumbo in people’s homes. I’ll have a page up soon devoted exclusively to that shortly, but until then, come on out and getcher groove on.

awwwww yeah,

Running through January…

Truffles: A new dinner theater murder-mystery experience!

In Italy’s world-renowned restaurant, Ciacco’s, the wealthy Donati family are preparing to auction their treasured two-pound truffle and pull themselves out of financial crisis. However, festivities abruptly grind to a halt when the truffle goes missing and the restaurant’s owner, Dante Donati, is found dead. Chef Bruno just wants his guests to have a good time. Carlo the waiter just wants to elope with the Donati’s daughter, Isabella. And the Donati’s just want to solve the mystery before someone else falls victim to murder….or at least before dessert. With this much money, food, and a truffle empire at stake……you will never guess WHO DONE IT!
