Burlesque Inspired by the Works of Joss Whedon

Aug 15 – 16, 21 – 23, 2014

Theatre Off Jackson, Seattle, Washington

[From the producers of Whedonesque Burlesque:]

After a year hiatus the third installment of Whedonesque Burlesque returned to Seattle for five sold out nights of bonafide nerdlesque shenanigans. Produced by “Professor of Nerdlesque” Jo Jo Stiletto, the shows featured a variety of acts inspired by the works of Joss Whedon: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Avengers, Firefly, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog, Angel, Agents of SHIELD, Cabin in the Woods and Much Ado About Nothing.

Performers explored the sexy, silly, strange, and emotional aspects of fandom through the art of burlesque. There were puppets, slayers, demon births, critical analysis, drunk thespians, and several big damn heroes. Nothing here is real. Nothing here is right.
