Sometimes you want vanilla ice cream, but other times you want chocolate mint with sprinkles, gummy bears and herring ice cream! The same goes for burlesque. Sometimes you want to see a regular, classic strip tease with glitter, feathers and tassels. But then there are the times when you need something more. Sometimes you need Mickey Mouse and accordions along with your strip tease. And today, that’s what you are going to get!
Thursday, February 21 | Al-Stravaganza! If you love accordions, pop culture parodies, burlesque and Weird Al, then we expect to see you at the Rendezvous for a star-studded Al-Stravaganza! San Francisco producer Pickles Kintaro originally staged this show at the Hubba Hubba Revue in 2012, and it delighted audiences so much that she’s taking it on the road to certified geektopias like our own Seattle. Starring Iva Handfull, Scandal from Bohemia, Scarlett O’Hairdye, Bolt Action, Lady Satan, Pickles Kintaro, Odessa Lil, Pearl E. Gates, Lola Martinet and Mistress Marla Spanx.
Friday, February 15 to Saturday, February 23 | That’s F*cked Up! It’s time to relieve yourself of the sickly pink residue of Hallmark holidays and drag 2013 into the gutter! Now in its fourth year, That’s F*cked Up! bubbles back to the surface like that stain you just can’t clean. The cast froths with Seattle’s most talented and deranged performance artists to bring you prompt, dependable relief from hackneyed burlesque, drag, and cirque. See things you can’t unsee and won’t see anywhere else! Undo years of therapy in a single evening! Slap yourself and say it with us now, “That’s F*cked Up!”Arts >
