About Us

Laura Daniel Gale has always had the desire to 'build the Mothership' for creatives to gather and share artistry, wisdom, and community. As owner of 'everything but the girl', a downtown Sarasota boutique (2005-2011), she gathered the best local craftspeople and presented a haven for exclusively locally-made goods.

As owner and producer of Sarasota's premier burlesque revue, Laura launched Black Diamond Burlesque in 2010 to rave reviews. Now in its seventh year of performing to sold-out audiences, this variety show continues to garner a dedicated following and fan-base.

In 2015, LDG Productions was born to bring 'everything you've ever loved but never experienced before' events to the area. Ongoing successes include 'Drag Queen Bingo Bonanza, starring Beneva Fruitville', 'Under the Covers, a evening of singer/songwriters' and special nights such as 'A Night in Cuba.'

Laura is delighted to present Talent Pool, bringing together eager learners and interesting teachers for engaging new ways to improve the creative mind.
