Through The Looking Glass: The Burlesque Alice in Wonderland
Lily Verlaine and Jasper McCann have both gone mad… mad as March Hares, that is! In their 10th annual re-imagination of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale of nonsense and fantasy, follow Alice as she discovers what wonders lie beyond the velvet rope at Wonderland’s most exclusive nightclub, The Looking Glass and attempts to best the evil Queen of Hearts to become the next ruler of Wonderland. New this year, Through The Looking Glass features the debut of Jasper McCann’s original musical score performed live by a jazz/rock ensemble. Inspired by hard-bop, psychedelia, go-go, and Indian Raga-pop recordings of the mid-60’s, McCann’s new arrangements set the mood for dance performances that combine classical ballet and jazz with bawdy burlesque beauty.

About the event (in their own words):

7 years.  1 night.  Party In Style.  That’s how we roll. Can you believe it’s been seven years?

So let’s celebrate, by getting fancy and dancing like maniacs, for a night you’ll never forget.

Giveaway: Seattle Wine & Food Experience Grand Tasting in February

One of the most delicious and delightful weekends of the year returns February 22 – 24!

This tasty weekend offers three events: Comfort, Pop! Bubbles & Seafood, and The Grand Tasting! Here’s what The Stranger’s Julianne Bell had to say: “This annual extravaganza of all things edible and drinkable is an ode to gluttony in three parts. First up is Comfort, a festival of “feel-good foods and crafty brews,” complete with bars for French fries, Bloody Marys, hot toddies, and milk and cookies. Next, POP! Bubbles and Seafoodcapitalizes on the felicitous pairing of bubbles and bivalves with a celebrity shucking contest and over 30 sparkling wines from around the world. Finally, the Grand Tasting will showcase local and regional wines, beer, cider, spirits, and tastes from big-name Seattle chefs, with plenty of opportunities to watch demonstrations and meet artisan food producers.”

Giveaway: Mamma Mia at The 5th Avenue Theatre!

Unleash your inner “Dancing Queen” with The 5th Avenue Theatre’s production of “Mamma Mia!” This Seattle production features a jaw-dropping talented cast, including the incredible Sarah Rudinoff and Lisa Estridge. I can already sense the feel-good shivers and pure joy we’ll experience during the show as we hear these two alongside the fabulous Kendra Kassebaum, who plays the lead. Yes, Seattle has seen this show before but it’s NEVER seen it like this. The direction is bound to be amazing and the sneak peeks of the production are so much fun. (Check out this video of one of their very early rehearsals together.)   If you like the musical (or even just the songs of ABBA), GO.

PS You love the songs of ABBA! That’s fantastic! Please stick to mouthing along silently to the songs instead of singing along (unless the cast directs you to do differently, as they likely will during the curtain call or encore). Your fellow audience members paid to hear the actors on stage and they can’t do that if you’re singing from your seat. Yes, you’re adorable! Yes, the songs are fabulous. So THANKS in advance for being respectful by waiting until after the show to belt the songs at karaoke!

Giveaway ends 11:59pm Pacific Time 2/3/18. Prize is two tickets to see Mamma Mia on February 6, 7, or 8, 2018.

GIVEAWAY: “Cotton Gin” at Unexpected Productions! Avenue Q meets Improv

Puppets + bawdy humor + improv comedy collide at Unexpected Productions for their production of “Cotton Gin” playing Fridays & Saturdays now through February 17!
About the show:
“Avenue Q” meets improv comedy in this adult puppet show at Unexpected Productions’ Market Theater. Where do puppets hang out after their day jobs? Well, after singing songs and dancing at the children’s theater, they head down to their local watering hole and pull up a bar stool. And when the Cotton Gin gets a little rowdy, marionettes and sock puppets alike bust out with bawdy songs and jokes. Come join the fun with the puppet regulars at “The Cotton Gin”, located at Pike Place Market.
