A Raunchy Christmas Adventure at the Triple Door
Who: If you’re looking for a sweet cookie cutter performing arts experience this season, well this one just isn’t for you. Classic ballet and burlesque legend Lily Verlaine pairs up with jack of all trades musician/performer Jasper McCann for an anything but traditional rendition of the Nutcracker. Land of the Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker is in its 8th season at the Triple Door, and will satisfy newcomers and delight returning patrons as this year has some surprise twists and turns, with an all star cast from Seattle’s Burlesque A-List.
New cast members coming from Spectrum dance theater and Ballet Bellevue are sizzling up the choreography, and favorites from years past are better than ever. Lily’s sultry Countess of Coffee, Miss Indigo Blue’s Icy Snow Queen and Waxie Moon, the gender-blending “boylesque” sensation’s King of Rats performances are sure to be at the top of this year’s soiree. These shows sell out quickly, so tuck the kids in bed and prepare for a naughty night at the Triple Door. Tickets $32.50-$47.50 here
