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.
