The weather was hot. I wore skort, top and no sweater or wrap, which would have been handy with the air conditioning going..

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,


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!
