Break open your best bottle of bourbon and ease into the hot August nights with The Tennessee Tease, a new burlesque play based on the works of Tennessee Williams. Produced by Fosse Jack and Sailor St. Claire in association with Theatre Off Jackson, The Tennessee Tease brings together Williams’ plays, memoirs, and original burlesque to explore the life and works of this gay American icon.
As Tennessee Williams crafts his memoirs, a cast of talented actors and burlesque artists bring to life Williams’ iconic characters alongside his family members, dearest friends, and lovers. Fact and fiction collide as Tenn imagines his life in letters, illuminated through the art of the tease.
The Tennessee Tease features Olatsa Assassin, Jesus La Pinga, Jesse Belle-Jones, Hisam Goueli, Diva Le Deviant, Apollo Vidra, Belle Bizarre, Al Lykya, Razzberry Rocket, Fosse Jack, Sailor St. Claire and local burlesque legend Eartha Quake.
Fosse and I are thrilled to bring this new show to Theatre Off Jackson on August 13, 14 & 15! Tickets go on sale on Monday, July 6 via BrownPaperTickets for $20. TOJ is wheelchair accessible. Please contact the producers or TOJ if you require accommodations for wheelchairs or other assistive devices.
Tomorrow night, the little live band show I created back in 2012 turns 3 years old! We've worked with a lot of beautiful dancers and many talented musicians over the years, and I am proud to say that the show has it a really solid groove. It's a lot of work to get live music shows off the ground, and maintaining them certainly has its peaks and valleys, but I never get tired of showing up at LUCID on the third Tuesday of the month and hosting with my band behind me and Miss Huney Bush keeping things tidy.
For our third anniversary, we're featuring quadruple threat Octavia Sexton, comedy cutie Maggie McMuffin, and sensual striptease by Ms. Briq House. Tickets are still available at www.tuesdayteaseseattle.com, so pick up a pair and join us in celebration tomorrow night!
Hit the road with me for my next production! It's going to be a wacky adventure of a show filled with weird stuff!
