Lily Verlaine & Jasper McCann Present in cooperation with The Seattle Weekly

Genre: Burlesque

Lily Verlaine and Jasper McCann are back at the Triple Door for their third installment of Land of the Sweets:  The Burlesque Nutcracker.  A spectacle of ecdysiastic pageantry, Land of the Sweets sets the Nutcracker to a swing-era soundtrack and gives the ballet a bawdy makeover.

Jasper McCann hosts the “perfect mix of singing, acrobatics, glamour and smutty jokes” (ProstAmerika), that features an all-star cast from Seattle’s Burlesque A-list, including Lily Verlaine, Miss Indigo Blue, Kitten La Rue, The Swedish Housewife, Babette La Fave, Waxie Moon and The Aerialistas.  After you’ve come in from the opening snowstorm, Verlaine, McCann and company invite you to trim the tree and warm up with exotic delicacies from the far corners of the globe.

Experience what made last year’s “audiences for these sold-out shows…go wild” (Seattle Times)  and discover what the discriminating burlesque aficionado has come to expect from a Verlaine & McCann production!  This year’s installment of Land of the Sweets  includes all your favorites from previous years plus some new surprises of “holiday hip”.   Land of the Sweets turns the winter-time event you’ve dreaded since childhood into an unpretentious smash-up of classical dance and vintage bump at the hepist holiday party since the end of prohibition.   With twelve performances, there’s no excuse to miss it this year!  “The time is right for a new holiday tradition” (Seattle P.I.), and Land of the Sweets is it… Join us!
