    decade, she launched Through the Looking Glass Studio in 2008 (in her home garage). She opened Dallas Pinup 
    and moved the studio there in Fall 2011. Shoshana has been producing Viva Dallas Burlesque since 2009, at 
    Lakewood Theatre 2010- Jan2015, then monthly with Viva Dallas Burlesque, and then monthly also with Cirque du 
    Burlesque- making two shows monthly. Her productions have sold the most tickets in a calendar year- the largest 
    burlesque show in the country. Aside from being Viva Dallas Burlesque's producer, Shoshanna  also shoots pinup
