Land Of The Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker says
The producers of the wildly popular holiday spectacular Land of the Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker snowstorm into downtown Seattle’s illustrious Triple Door theatre for their 10th anniversary season, offering 33 performances from December 10-27. An award-winning wintertime spectacle (Best Group, Burlesque Hall of Fame 2014), Land Of The Sweets has delighted thousands of holiday revelers since 2006 and become a new Seattle holiday tradition!

For tickets and information, visit The Triple Door website at or call (206) 838-4333.

Verlaine and McCann’s Nutcracker gives the traditional ballet a bawdy makeover. Land Of The Sweets features top-notch local dance talent from professional companies Spectrum Dance Theater and Whim W’Him, opulent custom costuming by Stephanie Seymour (formerly of Teatro ZinZanni), and original choreography from the classically-trained Lily Verlaine. Jasper McCann weaves the story as the audience meets characters from the ballet, such as the Russian Tepak Dancers, the Snow Queen, and the Sugar Plum Fairy.

Verlaine & McCann are the progenitors of the “spectacle of ecdysiastic pageantry,” a professional-grade variety entertainment that includes elements of burlesque, ballet, musical theatre, and vaudeville. Following the traditions of the great musical revues of Zigfield and the vaudeville and burlesque of Minksy’s, Verlaine & McCann provide entertainments for the discerning audience who understand and appreciate the style and glamor of that by-gone era. Throughout the year, their work can be seen primarily at The Triple Door, and around the Northwest.
