Margot Lugosi, the small town showgirl, sits down with MJ to talk about how her troupe The Fabulous Funcie Femmes came to fruition, being a lifelong dancer, teaching at the amazing Cornerstone Center for the Arts in the old Masonic Temple, how much they both love hair pieces and how her troupe and other local performers gave back in a big way to their home venue, the Mark III TapRoom, Muncie Indiana's only LGBTQIA bar. In Indiana, it is true, come in a stranger and leave a friend!
