Quotes & Highlights
Directed by Katherine Siegel and choreographed by Kay Smiles, Don’t Blink: A Doctor Who Burlesque is an awesomely hilarious burlesque spoof on the beloved series about the multi-incarnationed time traveler.
Says Seigal, “‘Don’t Blink’ is the sexy ode to Doctor Who that fans like me have been waiting for.” She continues, “It’s great to have the opportunity to take something you love and turn it on its head. So much work in science fiction deals with gender politics; and with a growing audience of female Sci-Fi fans, it’s great to take a moment to look at content with as much history as Doctor Who through a lens of femininity. Burlesque is all about social commentary through parody which makes it exciting for all audiences. Mixed in with the funny one liners and sight gags there is a ton of commentary about the emphasis on gender in the Doctor Who community. Oh, and did I mention? For those people who don’t care about all that, there will be boobs. Roller skating Dalek boobs. C’mon – how awesome is that?”
Writer Busty Warren is excited to have brought a burlesque Doctor to life. “I’m thrilled that this show is happening in the year of Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary…I’ve been a fan since before the 20th anniversary!” When asked to comment on her preferred Doctor, she replied, "For most people, their first Doctor is their favorite Doctor. Mine was 4, Tom Baker. I actually met him once at a convention in Boston in 1983. I knew it would be impossible to include all the Doctors, so I used the three most recent, from the “new” series, plus my boy Tom.”
