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.

Maybe the best local burlesque that I've seen. The dancers were above and beyond many other groups like Can-can, and the choreographers, Lily Verlaine, Kitten LaRue, Olivier Wevers, made the show and experience not to be forgotten. I want more!
Quotes & Highlights
“Hands down the best show I’ve seen all year.” —Jessica Price, burlesqueseattle.com
L’Edition Francaise is a split bill of dance and burlesque by Lily Verlaine (Artistic Director and choreographer of The Burlesque Nutcracker), Kitten LaRue (Artistic Director and choreographer of The Atomic Bombshells) and Olivier Wevers (Artistic Director and Choreographer, Whim W’Him).
The three choreographers will present new dance and burlesque works set to the sensational catalogues of artists Serge Gainsbourg, Hugues LeBars Francoise Hardy, France Gall, Brigitte Bardot, and other French icons. Weaving their own French paradox, Verlaine, LaRue and Wevers explore eros, farce, manipulation, naiveté and alluring indifference in three individual short programs.
This is a provocative evening of Francophilia not to be missed!
