La Danse! Le Burlesque! L’Edition Française!

From French kissing to French-cut panties, we like to think that anything French is just a little naughty, a covert look to the sexy side of the street. With encore performances of two classic burlesque numbers, plus a fast-paced farce, La Danse! Le Burlesque! L’Edition Française! will tease you without giving too much away. Lily Verlaine and Kitten LaRue, both stars of the Seattle burlesque scene, have crafted works that evoke the moody nightclub world of Serge Gainsbourg and the liberation of the go-go 1960s. Also on the bill, Whim W’him director Olivier Wevers reaches back to 19th-century farce for a trio featuring two dancers, a couch, and some disappearing bits of costume. SANDRA KURTZ
