Burlesque Royale: a positively dreamy photo recap.
Ah, Burlesque Royale. Minds were blown; hearts set afire.
A diverse array of fiercely unique women shared their larger-than-life talents at Seattle’s Triple Door on September 14. If you missed it, what follows is a quick photo recap through the eyes of three photographers kind enough to share their images. The show’s producer, Seattle’s beloved Shanghai Pearl, was probably the most blown away- and the most humbled – by her cast culled from across the country. When we spoke via email post-show, Shanghai had a few things to say about Burlesque Royale‘s lasting impression in her mind:
“Unapologetic Womanliness. That, if anything was probably the underlying theme of the show. Women being women, being fierce, sexy, stunning, glamorous, adorable, STRONG, bawdy, cute, brilliant, challenging, sweet, women being all these things, standing on stage in all their radical womanliness, taking up space with zero apology.”
We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. And we absolutely cannot wait to see what the Shanghai Pearl dreams up next when she sets her mind to producing. BRING. IT.
