Largesse: A Benefit in the House of Verlaine

For their fourth annual production at The Triple Door, House of Verlaine Presents

Largesse: A Benefit in The House of Verlaine

This one-night only fundraising event showcases some of the best of House of Verlaine's "Polished and incredibly stylish” (21st Century Burlesque Magazine) repertoire as well as new pieces from the yet in-development Juliet and Her, Romeo that were made possible by financial contributions acquired during House of Verlaine’s 2017 season. Juliet and Her, Romeo is evolving as a darling reimagination of the classic that showcases the company’s technical and artistic reach as well as its progressive values and aesthetic.

"House of Verlaine could very well be the next big thing in both the burlesque and dance scene-its cross-genre approach certainly gives it the ability to appeal to both demographics."~Seattle Dances

Artistic director and burlesque star Lily Verlaine will take the stage in a scandalously decadent new production number and graceful solo performances. 

The exclusive VIP experience will bookend the evening with intimate pre and post-show experiences. Tickets to this experience are limited to 75 guests and will include performances, champagne toasts, desserts, and a peek into the mind of Ms. Verlaine in the form of meet-and-greets with the dancers and insights into the creative and rehearsal process that goes into the cultivation of daring classical artistry.

Embedded in the evening are silent and live auctions by charismatic auctioneer Sasha Cousineau.  Items will include memorabilia from House of Verlaine, exquisite dining experiences, theater tickets and more.

Through The Looking Glass: The Burlesque Alice in Wonderland

Tenth fantastic season!

Conceived, Developed, Directed, and Produced by Lily Verlaine & Jasper McCann

Choreography by Lily Verlaine

Script, Lyrics, and Original Melodies by Jasper McCann

Verlaine & McCann have both gone mad… mad as March Hares, that is.

“The mischievously talented Lily Verlaine & Jasper McCann” (Seattle Magazine) return to the Triple Door next spring for the 10th season of their “incomparable…colorful and entertaining” (Seattle Gay News) re-imagination of Lewis Carroll’s classic tale of nonsense and fantasy. Come along with Alice as she discovers what wonders lie beyond the velvet rope at Wonderland’s most exclusive nightclub, The Looking Glass, and tries to best the evil Queen of Hearts to become the next Queen of Wonderland.

This production mixes jazz, classical, Indian, and exotic music to set the mood as dancers from around the region combine ballet and jazz dance into a whirlwind of whimsy and bawdy beauty. The superstars of Seattle’s Burlesque A-List take on the roles of Carroll’s famous characters and turn Wonderland’s topsy-turvy world into an ecdysiastic tour-de-force filled with glamour, comedy, dance, striptease, and song.
