Lily Verlaine and Jasper McCann snowstorm into Seattle’s illustrious Triple Door this December for their ninth annual installment of Land of the Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker. An award-winning wintertime spectacle and “the best thing about Christmas in Seattle” (CultureMob), Land Of The Sweets has delighted thousands of holiday revelers since 2006.
This year’s production will delight the newcomer and surprise return visitors to the Land of the Sweets. The show's signature act, The Countess of Coffee, returns in high style with exquisite new costuming by Louise DeLenge of Teatro Zinzanni. Other favorites will be back in all their glory, including Waxie Moon’s nefarious Rat King, the light-juggling magic of Babette La Fave, and Laurel Bordeaux's Clockwork Doll.
You'll also meet some fresh faces in this year's world of winter magic. Mimi Mi (Shadou Mintrone of Spectrum Dance Theater) joins the beloved Snowflakes, Poppy Daze (founding member of Circus Contraption) returns to the cast as our high-flying Angel, and Tory Tiara will be stepping into the spotlight as the Sugar Plum Fairy!
Jasper McCann hosts this “rollicking, frolicking, unabashed and uninhibited celebration of the season” (Seattle P.I) that features an all-star cast from Seattle’s Burlesque A-list.
Come and experience why “audiences for these sold-out shows…go wild” (Seattle Times). With a theatrical run of 33 performances there’s no excuse to miss it this year! Join us!
