The ballet goes burlesque! Written by Mark-Brian Sonna, A Bur-Less-Q Nutcracker finds the ladies of a local book club in dire need of cash. To that end, the club decides to stage Tchaikovsky's famous ballet as a fundraiser. But thanks to a disastrous piña colada casserole at a pre-show party, the hired cast of ballet dancers falls ill and the ladies are forced to re-cast the show with members of a stranded burlesque troupe that happens to be stuck in town. The ensuing performance by the Velvet Kittens might not feature any nudity, but it does contain a festive string of sexual puns, adult language and bump-and-grind dance numbers. The production is recommended for mature audiences in the mood for a seasonal send-up. Learn More

Quotes & Highlights
- "De la Costa imagines timeless stories we all relate to, wraps them in a gay perspective, and entertains audiences, the majority of which are straight. His stories transfer to universal themes. His dialogs are comical and poignant, and the situations he creates between people are relevant and funny. He presents archetypes that play power games with each other and the consequences they experience and the lessons they learn teach us how to live....magnificent."--Charlie Bowles for John Garcia's The Column
Directed by Charles Ballinger
Starring Mark-Brian Sonna as Lovely, Richard S. Blake as Randy and Dylan Peck as Casey

About the Ticket Supplier: MBS Productions
MBS Productions specializes in "new theater." In essence, every play or musical they do is a world premier. They are the only theatrical production company in North Texas that specializes exclusively in producing previously unseen works for the stage. They deem their audience to be the most adventurous, sophisticated, and eager, for they know that they'll get to experience these new works.
MBS Productions was founded in 2004 by Mark-Brian Sonna when he produced the show, "Theatre of Death," which was presented at the Teatro Dallas space for the Halloween season. The show consisted of six short plays dating from the middle ages through the present day, all dealing with death. Two of the plays were world premiers, three were new translations, and one was an adaptation of an existing work. This set the tone for what was to come. In 2005, they did a second show of "Theatre of Death" to kick off a 3-show season that carried them through the summer of 2006. In their 2006/2007 season, they presented five plays. They currently produce six shows a year, as well as assist and serve as consultants to other theater companies in developing and producing new and existing plays for their audiences.
