Shrug off the squareness of reality and fall into an entertaining re-imagination of Lewis Carroll's classic tale of nonsense and fantasy with Through the Looking Glass: The Burlesque Alice in Wonderland. From the minds of Artistic Director Lily Verlaine and collaborator Jasper McCann -- producers of the wildly successful holiday burlesque extravaganza Land of the Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker and the wine-soaked Burlesco DiVino: Wine in Rome -- comes this scintillating story of Alice as she discovers what's beyond the velvet rope at Wonderland's most exclusive nightclub, The Looking Glass. This show features the superstars of Seattle's burlesque A-list, including Lily Verlaine, Miss Indigo Blue, Babette La Fave, Miss Inga Ingénue, Trojan Original, Paris Original and Jasper McCann.

Formed under the banner “a modern American string band,” this Boston-based stringband brings a decidedly modern sensibility to an old-world sound, channeling the prodigious talents of its individual members into elegant arrangements and well-crafted songs. While the group pays due homage to its Bluegrass roots—its name is taken from WJKS, a radio station that broadcasted the Monroe brothers’ show in the 1930s—the band truly excels in its rich and textured treatment of more contemporary material. Boasting a full arsenal of original songs, Joy Kills Sorrow plumbs the entire spectrum of its spare instrumentation, effortlessly merging influences as diverse as folk, rock, pop, and jazz. The music that emerges is dark and often funny, ruminating on modern life and love with eloquence and wit. The result is a radical new strain of folk music, one that bravely breaks with tradition even as it salutes the past.
