If You Don't Know Where You're Going, Any Road Will Take You There

Saturday night, some of the Lady Loves and I went to the Through The Looking Glass: The Burlesque Alice in Wonderland. To say it was "amazing" is an understatement. It was a rollicking, rocking, rolling, gyrating, floating, graceful, hilarious, beautiful, bawdy, bright night.

The production was not put on by any one company, but all the dancers were of Seattle's burlesque elite, and almost all teach at Miss Indigo Blue's Academy of Burlesque. Below are some photos from the night, taken by the lovely Briana Taylor.

The caterpillar!

The Jabberwocky! At which point, being the nerds we are, Leila and I recited the opening of the poem along with the emcee.

And representing the talking flowers, Tiger Lily!

The Mad Hatter's tea party. The waitress Eat Me was an uninvited guest.

The White Rabbit as the emcee.

The only boylesque performer, The Cheshire Cat, whose performance consisted of scratching at the arm of the chair and putting clothes on.

The caterpillar transformed into a butterfly!

And was drop-dead gorgeous!

Alice and the Queen of Hearts played strip poker.

The Queen lost.

The two halves of Alice in the say goodbye to each other through the looking glass.
