“Her act sizzles, thanks to the expert direction of veteran Derick LaSalla. The audience loved her.  It is probably the most unique show on display in Los Angeles and worth the trip.”—Stage Mage

“[Luna] she’s a walking ball of comic defiance, which is exactly what stand-up is supposed to be.”—LA Weekly

“A delightful emotional rollercoaster… makes you leave the theater satisfied that you are perfect just the way you are! … This show has EVERYTHING I look for in an evening of entertainment.”—Jackie Beat

“All will find the joy and fun of the performance intoxicating.  This show delivers the goods!”—Thomas Hampton Reviews

The most memorable for us was Selena Luna: Her retro-arty performances helped close people’s gaping mouths (most of them anyway), making her slutty French baby and lonely turn-of-the-century farm worker acts smart and endearing.

A polished spitfire.

Selene Luna lives in a building once inhabited by Lucille Ball, and whatever magic Ball left in the walls seems to have rubbed off. Luna radiates old Hollywood glamour, and it’s not just the kitten heels or the torpedo bra. She’s got a quirky humor reminiscent of the red-haired comedian, made naughty by a touch of Bettie Page sensuality and the girlish charm of Betty Boop.  It’s that kind of presence that has made Luna one of the most recognizable faces in the city’s burlesque-revival scene.
