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.

This group, on its first U.S. tour, totally astonished us--with their energy and skill, and with the sheer beauty of their music. Each of the nine performers could be a soloist in his/her own right; instead, they blend their work together to create a densely textured whole. These guys deserve to be stars.

The show was amazing not at all what I expected. Thank you so much for the deal. I had never been to The Triple Door before and with this amazing deal I was able to experience a new band and new venue which I will definately attend again.
Quotes & Highlights
Yemen Blues is an original and fascinating meeting of traditional Yemenite melodies & the world of blues, jazz and funk. The flavours of West African roots and enhanced modern compositions are bringing together a breathtaking experience and a mixture of beautiful complex grooves. It is the powerful outcome of Ravid Kahalani’s musical journey from his Yemenite roots to western influences – a joyful oasis in the middle of the desert.
Yemen Blues was founded by Ravid Kahalani, a rising star in Israel who grew up to a traditional Yemenite family, learned the language and the traditional chants of his origin, and extended his influences in the areas of blues and West African soul, from the Sahara desert thru classical Opera singing to Afro American blues.
