The ABC Double D’s of Burlesque LIVE!

The ABC Double D’s of Burlesque LIVE!

The world premiere of the new successfully funded Kickstarter coffee table book and full length theatrical feature! The ABC Double D’s of Burlesque, the illustrated A-Z encyclopedia all about burlesque, is now a show!

April O’Peel was once a shy girl who sought the power within. Awakened by her presence onstage, the lights and the action of burlesque fueled her energy and courage. What is the secret?

Join April, the cast of Gastown Cabaret, and special guests as she recounts her adventures through The ABC Double D’s of Burlesque! From A is for Audience and on the road to Z is for Ziegfeld, explore the history and sparkle of burlesque. A story unfolds and grows as April teams up with friends along her journey, battling the world of stereotypes and inequality with creativity, community, and fancy dance moves.
