Through the Looking Glass: The Burlesque Alice In Wonderland

Mainstage Theatre, 216 Union Street, Seattle

For the first time since 2019, Verlaine & McCann have gone mad as March Hares…again

After two and a half long years in the virtual world, “The mischievously talented Lily Verlaine & Jasper McCann” (Seattle Magazine) return by popular demand to the Triple Door this September for their 2022 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 menacing Queen of Hearts to become the next Queen of Wonderland.

Marvel as our live jazz-rock sextet, “The Aces & Eights”, plays hard-bop, psychedelia, and Indian Raga-pop to set the mood as exceptional dancers from around the region combine dance styles 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.

Verlaine & McCann have new surprises and an array of talented new performers in store at the Looking Glass, so get ready to go mad again with us this September!
