Through the Looking Glass: The Burlesque Alice in Wonderland
The producers of the wildly successful holiday burlesque extravaganza Land Of The Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker, and the wine-soaked party-through-time Burlesco DiVino: Wine In Rome, have both gone mad… mad as March Hares, that is.
Lily Verlaine & Jasper McCann invite you to shrug off the squareness of reality and fall into their “incomparable…colorful and entertaining” (Seattle Gay News) re-imagination of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale of nonsense and fantasy. Come along with Alice as she discovers what wonders lie beyond the velvet rope at Wonderland’s most exclusive nightclub, The Looking Glass.
An exploration of numerous artistic influences, this production mixes jazz with classical, Indian, and exotic music to set the mood as dancers from around the region mix ballet and jazz dance into a whirlwind of whimsy and bawdy beauty.
The superstars of Seattle’s Burlesque A-List, including Lily Verlaine, Miss Indigo Blue, Waxie Moon, Kitten La Rue, Babette La Fave, J. Von Stratton, Polly Wood, Trojan Original, Paris Original, and Jasper McCann take on the roles of Carroll’s famous characters. Joined by Miss Inga Ingénue and Lou Henry Hoover as Alice and the lovely dance trio Tribella, the ensemble turns Wonderland’s topsy-turvy world into an ecdysiastic tour de force filled with glamour, comedy, dance, striptease, and song. Join them again… in Wonderland!
