Lily Verlaine Brings Her Unique Combination of Professional Dance and Burlesque Back to Seattle with New Production, Pro Dancers

SEATTLE, Wash. — Burlesco DiVino: Wine in Rome is the newest spectacle of ecdysiastic pageantry from Lily Verlaine and Jasper McCann, the producers of the award-winning Land Of The Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker and Through The Looking Glass: The Burlesque Alice In Wonderland. The show runs October 1-4, 2014 at The Triple Door in downtown Seattle – opening/press night is October 1 at 7:30 p.m.

The first and only burlesque production commissioned by The Triple Door, Burlesco DiVino takes the audience on a wild trip across Rome in 1963 with headstrong American writer Babs Lawson and her friend, Italian musician Lanzo Travaglio. Saddled with staging a dance production of the story of Antony and Cleopatra for a State-sponsored cultural exchange, Babs and Lanzo are in over their heads. With the deadline looming and their reputations on the line, they need to flesh out the cast, costume the show, get over their writer’s block, and figure out how to pay for it all without destroying their friendship. Will the show be a tragic failure, or will they be able to charm the citizens of Rome to get into the act?

Inspired by the great costume epics Quo Vadis and Satyricon, and the mid-century visions of Rome La Dolce Vita and Roman Holiday, this show mixes classical music, jazz, and Italian go-go rock with the traditional music of ancient Rome. Priestesses, paparazzi, Vespa-girls, fire dancers, and fashionistas all take their turn in the spotlight. This “party through time” mixes belly dance, go-go, and ballet with comedy, striptease, glamour, and song!

Featuring burlesque superstars Lily Verlaine, Inga Ingénue, The Luminous Pariah, Paris Original, Trojan Original, and Jasper McCann, with rising stars Laurel Bordeaux, Tory Tiara, Holly Pop, and Fosse Jack, musical-theater actress Erika Zabelle, and the fusion belly-dance trio Tribella, the show will leave you punch-drunk with delight!
