Who is Mistress Ginger?

Mistress Ginger is 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, née Mary Morningstar, was born in Barnesville, Maryland. She made her musical debut at the tender age of 16 at the Barnesville Bar & Grill and was soon after headlining as "Little Miss Ginger" at Le Supperclub de la Swank. By 2006, she had taken the stage name "Mistress Ginger" and moved to Minneapolis, where she was performing as a showtune-wielding dominatrix in the satirical cabaret spectacle "Broadway Bound...and Gagged" at Professor Rottenbottom's Pre-Opera House of Whores. She has since hung up her whip and evolved into a dazzling cabaret diva, using an alarmingly eclectic array of popular song as a catalyst for storytelling. All of this and more was revealed in her 2016 biopic-cabaret extravaganza, Hello My Name Is Mistress Ginger.

And she can cook, too! Ginger has fueled herself with a vegan diet since 2002, and she's still alive! In fact, she wrote a cookbook to share her vegan pearls of wisdom with the world at large. Mistress Ginger Cooks!: Everyday Vegan Food for Everyone was published in 2014 by Book Publishing Company 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..."
