Seacoast Rep presents WONDERLUST BURLESQUE, running Wednesday nights in August starting August 8th, 2012. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the production below.
After the smashing success of White Hot Winter 2012 at The Rep, with standing room only crowds for the Sweet Nothings Burlesque and Drag Show, The Rep has added a "Red Light Series" program to its regular mainstage and youth performances. Featuring an adults-only alternative programming, the show is sure to be a hit for first timers as well as "seasoned" burlesque veterans. The Red Light will, um, expose the community to the freshest local talent and some of the country’s best alternative performers.
The newest addition to the Red Light series is Wonderlust Burlesque: Summer Of… A month long burlesque series starring Portland Maine’s Dirty Dishes Burlesque Revue and the ever popular (and local) Lady Luck Burlesque. The show’s will be hosted by one of New England’s quirkiest and most sought after drag queens, Bunny Wonderland (Knate Higgins). The 4 shows present 4 different themes each week. Summer of Sin (August 8th) Summer of 69 (August 15th) Summer of Magic (August 22nd) and Summer of Love (August 29th). Each week will bring in new local and regional performers, and a new theme. Keeping the whole “endless summer” fresh and fun every single week.
