Remember in December, when you could celebrate the holidays with your friends and family in the most festive and glamorous way? Well this year, you can swing in the season again with us! Lily Verlaine and Jasper McCann are elated to announce the long-awaited return of their award-winning wintertime spectacle, Land of the Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker. Voted “The Best Burlesque In Western Washington” (KING 5), Land Of The Sweets has delighted thousands of holiday revelers since 2006, and is Seattle’s most glamorous holiday tradition!
All your favorite characters will be back, including Lily Verlaine’s Sugar Plum Fairy, the light-juggling magic of Babette La Fave, the ever-loveable Snowflakes… and of course the swinginest band in the Land, The Nutcracker Nonette!
Not content to rest on our laurels, Verlaine & McCann have been working tirelessly to make 2021’s season memorable and electrifying for our new and returning guests. Fan-favorite Patrick Jeffrey returns from Minneapolis to reprise his role as The Rat King, and joining the ensemble this year is dancer Babatunji Johnson, straight from Alonso King’s LINES Ballet in San Francisco. Also new for this year, an entirely re-imagined “Emissaries from the Land Of Tea” features opulent new costume design, updated concept collaboration between Paris Original and Lily Verlaine all set to a sultry new musical arrangement by Jasper McCann. Countless other surprises await… so prepare to be enchanted by Land Of The Sweets like never before!
We can’t wait to see all our friends, family, and fans this year on The Triple Door Mainstage. With 26 performances, tickets will go fast… let’s celebrate the holidays together… again!
