Madams of Central Colorado September 11th show has been CANCELLED.


The popular “Madams of Central Colorado” returns to the Buena Vista Heritage Museum in 2021 for one show only. Advanced reservations are recommended since this show tends to sell out.

From Cockeyed Liz, whose former Palace of Joy is less than a block from the museum, to archrival Belle Brown, Salida’s Laura Evans, and Lillian Powers of Florence, the madams, and their girls discuss how they got into “the business” and other aspects of life as a fallen woman at the turn of the last century.

Although the subject matter is touchy, the performers keep the discussion as tasteful as possible, focusing on educational and historical aspects. However, no children under 13 will be allowed.

Many local women have donated their time for the performances and enjoy sharing their knowledge. Check back to see where they will be traveling!

Proceeds benefit Buena Vista Heritage, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to preserve and share the history of Buena Vista and Chaffee County.
