Through the Looking Glass:
The Burlesque Alice in Wonderland
Conceived, Developed, Directed, and Produced by Lily Verlaine & Jasper McCann
Principle Choreography by Lily Verlaine
Script, Lyrics, and Original Melodies by Jasper McCann
Verlaine & McCann have both gone mad… mad as March Hares, that is.
“The mischievously talented Lily Verlaine & Jasper McCann” (Seattle Magazine) return to the Triple Door next spring for the 8th season of 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, and tries to best the evil Queen of Hearts to become the next Queen of Wonderland.
This production mixes jazz, classical, Indian, and exotic music to set the mood as dancers from around the region combine ballet and jazz dance into a whirlwind of whimsy and bawdy beauty. The superstars of Seattle’s Burlesque A-List take on the roles of Carroll’s famous characters and turn Wonderland’s topsy-turvy world into an ecdysiastic tour-de-force filled with glamour, comedy, dance, striptease, and song.
