“Enchanted,” an evening of burlesque, will take place at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, at Open Space for Arts & Community. The evening is part of Open Space’s ongoing series, Burlesco Notturno.
The evening will be hosted, as usual, by Janet McAlpin, appearing on stilts as the saucy Mme. X. She’ll be accompanied by David Godsey, playing the comic role of her silent, bumbling lawyer. The Love Markets, a Seattle group that plays music evocative of 1920s Berlin, will be the backing band for the entire evening.
Performers will include Indigo Blue, a burlesque performer who has not appeared on Vashon in the past six-years, due to her busy touring schedule. Another performer will be big-top acrobat Terry Crane, who has held two residencies at Open Space in recent years to prepare his troupe, Acrobatic Conundrum, in the development of new work. The evening will also feature work from the well-known Seattle burlesque acts The Atomic Bombshells and Kitten n’ Lou.
New to the Burlesco Notturno stage will be Tony Tapatio, who has also freshly returned from performing at the New York Burlesque Festival.
The evening, for adults only, includes a dinner option created by Chef Lia Lira of Bramble House. Gold Star tickets include the VIP hors d’oevres and VIP dinner plus a private post-show party with the artists and a full dessert tasting table by chef Lia Lira. Advance tickets are $28 or $35 at the door. Reserved table seats are $42. VIP table seats are $75. Gold Star tickets are $155. To purchase, visit openspacevashon.org.
