Who is Mistress Ginger?

Mistress Ginger is just your typical quadruple-threat diva: singer, dancer, actress, and vegan know-it-all. When she's not dazzling audiences with the latest Junkyard Cabaret production, she can be found cooking up tantalizing vegan meals for one or more of her many lovers.

Mistress Ginger was born Mary Morningstar in Barnesville, Maryland. She made her musical debut at the Barnesville Bar & Grill at the age of 16 and was soon after headlining as Little Miss Ginger at Le Supperclub de la Swank. After a stint in New Orleans, she sailed up the Mississippi and surfaced in Minneapolis. There, she found work at Professor Rottenbottom's Pre-Opera House of Whores as a showtune-slinging dominatrix (thus the Mistress moniker). She has since hung up her whip and blossomed into a glittering cabaret diva, serving up an eclectic array of popular song to take audiences on a journey they won't soon forget.

And she can cook, too! Ginger has fueled herself with a vegan diet since 2002, and she wrote a cookbook to share her vegan pearls of wisdom with the world. Mistress Ginger Cooks!: Everyday Vegan Food for Everyone was published in 2014 and has wowed the critics with its high-heeled brand of plant-based cookery. The Star Tribune says, "We've never thought it possible to use the words 'vegan' and 'glamour' in the same sentence, until now..."
