Picks of the (g)litter.
Ah, pseudo-summertime. If you thought June was intensely packed with burlesque, just wait until July rolls around. We have some special features, guest interviews, guest contributors, and many, many shows to bring you coverage of- but until then, here’s a few particularly inspired events to end June with a bang:
First off, Paul Constant over at The Stranger just wrote a glowing review of the Heavenly Spies show Majesty! which closes this Friday night. Those hard-working, high-kicking ladies always blow me away with their unique and heavily choreographed numbers and their rapid-fire, peerless delivery. It’s really quite something to witness. Read Paul Constant’s fab review HERE, and check out some previous Spies features that I penned for The Stranger HERE and BSP HERE.
Also starting on Friday- this show is (I believe) already sold out, but is still worth a mention because of its inspired concept alone. Vixen Valentine and Beatrice Belladonna bring you two nights of Behind The Blue Door: A Dr. Who-inspired Cabaret on Friday, June 29th and Saturday, June 30th at 8:00pm at the Annex Theatre.
From the mouths of the ladies:
Behind The Blue Door: A Dr. Who-inspired Cabaret is our sexy, silly take on the Whoniverse. Join us for an evening of burlesque, dance and more as we shimmy, shake, tease, and twirl our way across time and space with the help of a tarted-up TARDIS. With eleven Doctors, multiple companions, several spin-off shows, and an entire universe to explore anything can happen!

And finally, Saturday night:
Our friends over at Teatro ZinZanni once again share their unique stage and magnificent spiegeltent with returning guests from DeLouRue Presents and Dance Belt USA for FANCY SCHMANCY. The show is billed as a “post Pride dance party of theatrical proportions”:
Here’s the scoop:
From the crew that brought you PARTY SCHMARTY it’s….FANCY SCHMANCY! Suffering from pride withdrawal? Well dust off your most debaucherous dancin’ duds and get ready to sweat out those post-pride blues cuz it’s ALWAYS gay when DeLouRue gets their glittery mitts on it! It’s the wildest party ever to invade an antique Belgian spiegeltent! Drink it, snack it, twerk it, and feast your peepers on acts by some of Seattle’s most over-the-top performers! And remember: The Swanky Skankster always dresses for excesses. Teatro ZinZanni becomes CLUB ZINZANNI for one night only!
