A Whimsical Wizarding Burlesque Revue

Reviews & Booking Info

Past Reviews

If you are looking for a highly entertaining and professional group of performers, look no further than Hysteria Machines! Not only were we laughing frequently, but the show they put together was top quality! We wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to any organization wanting a creative and professional group to take their event to the next level! Give them any character roles and they will knock them out of the park. We are looking forward to working with them again to create a memorable and successful impression for our audience."

I was standing all the way in the back the whole time and enjoyed every minute of it!


I just got home from watching your 11:30 show on Saturday, and I was truly amazed. My first ever burlesque show combined with one of my nerdy loves just blew me away entirely. As a vocalist and a lover of the arts I will definitely come and watch again. Thank you all so much for providing this service to the community and I wish everyone the greatest of success and fun with it. Again thank you!!!

Sexpelliarmus II

I saw. I loved. I wanted more! Sexpelliarmus at Atlanta Shakespeare Company was even more magical than the first rendition. So many show stopping numbers! So much talent on one stage, I could barely believe my eyes. Mischief was managed, achieved, and sassified. Hysteria Machines know how to put on show and bring down the house, whether it was Griffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, or Slytherin. 100 points to all of the houses for rapping, dancing and making the world of Harry Potter sexier than it has ever been.

"The whole show was amazing, but the Beauxbatons were my favorite. A little nice, a little naughty, then throw in the madame.......perfection."
