Tuesday Tease: Improvisational Burlesque!

Arts >

stage-questionWhen you go to a burlesque show, you never quite know what you are going to get. There are a few guarantees (rhinestones, pasties, music and horrific puns) but beyond that the night is a glitteringly bedazzled mystery for the audience to experience.

For the three shows that we’re featuring this week, it will be a mystery for the performers as well! Burlesque is usually a meticulously choreographed and rehearsed activity, but these brave performers have thrown caution to the wind and will come to the stage armed with nothing but guts and talent to bring you improvised acts to excite and amaze. Think of it as a slightly sexier, live version of the TV show Who’s Line is it Anyway?

Whose Thong Is It Anyway? is Seattle’s improvisational burlesque show where everyone takes their clothes off and the points don’t matter.

Akin to the television program Whose Line Is It Anyway?, this show will involve a small group of performers sharing a stage and being presented with improvisational scenarios which will be scored by their talented MC. This show features the talents of Cirquesse, Scandal from Bohemia, Paige Rustles and EmpeROAR Fabulous.

But that’s not all! If you purchase VIP tickets for the show, you will also get a seat in the first two rows, a chance to participate in the show, photos with the cast after the show and an 8X10 souvenir photo signed by Cirquesse herself!
