Eat Me, Drink Me

If you have ever watched a musical and thought, "Wait a minute! Do the characters in this story know they just broke into song?" At the White Rabbit Burlesque might blow your mind. The characters, loosely based on Lewis Carroll's beloved creatures, sing, tango, clown, dance on pointe, and occasionally shed their clothes amid constellations of feather fans while little Alice tries to get her feet back on the ground. A follow-up to last year's bang Rebel Without a Bra, White Rabbit is the second fully-consummated alliance between DIVAfest board member/director Amanda Ortmayer and burlesque mainstays Red Velvet and If-N'-Whendy. The story follows a new recruit at an old club run by the no-bull Queen of Hearts. The strange and eccentric personalities Alice encounters — the Mad Hatter, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, the Duchess, and a philosophical stoner named Dammit Phil — are all played by favorites from Red Velvet and If-N'-Whendy's monthly burlesque revue DIVA or Die.

Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: May 3. Continues through May 24, 2014
