Burlesco DiVino: Wine In Rome
A celebration of wine, liberation, and frivolity in The Eternal City of the Swingin’ 60’s!
The first and only burlesque production commissioned by The Triple Door, Burlesco DiVino takes the audience on a wild trip across Rome in 1963 with American choreographer Babs Lawson and her friend, Italian musician Lanzo Travaglio. After disappointing their widowed patron Donatella Chianti with a work of avant-garde dance, Babs and Lanzo are in over their heads. With a deadline looming and Babs’ visa on the line, they search for inspiration in the streets, at a wild party, and get a morning after they’ll never forget, thanks to a lot of wine and a little advice from Helen Gurley Brown. Will their new show be a tragic failure, or will they be able to charm the citizens of Rome to get into the act and lift Donatella out of her grief?
Burlesco DiVino: Wine In Rome is the intoxicating theatrical burlesque mélange that you’ve come to expect from Verlaine & McCann and company. Join us in the Bacchanal this fall!
