Shoreline resident is rising star in burlesque at the Triple Door

Monday, July 23, 2012

Shoreline resident Miss Holly Pop
Lily Verlaine and Jasper McCann, producers of Seattle’s wildly successful burlesque extravaganzas “Land Of The Sweets: The Burlesque Nutcracker” and “Through The Looking Glass: The Burlesque Alice In Wonderland” bring you a party across time with their first-ever commissioned work, the new spectacle of ecdysiastic pageantry, “Burlesco DiVino: Wine In Rome”, a celebration of wine, beauty, and frivolity across time in The Eternal City.

Commissioned by The Triple Door to coincide with its annual Month Of Riesling Celebration, this show will take the audience on a wine-soaked adventure in two eras: The first, a harvest celebration that calls forth the God Of Wine himself in the time of the Roman Empire, and the second, the story of an intrepid reporter determined to photograph a reclusive diva in the Rome of the swingin’ Sixties.

Inspired by the great costume epics Quo Vadis and Satyricon, as well as mid-century visions of Rome such as La Dolce Vita and Roman Holiday, this show mixes classical and jazz music with the traditional music of ancient Rome and Italian go-go rock. Costumed by the illustrious Danial Hellman, arcane priestesses, paparazzi, Vespa-girls, fire dancers, and fashionistas all take their turn in the spotlight. This “party through time” mixes belly dance, go-go, and ballet with comedy, song, striptease, glamour, and an orgy that lasts 2000 years!

Featuring burlesque superstars Lily Verlaine, Inga Ingénue, The Luminous Pariah, Paris Original, Trojan Original, and Jasper McCann, with rising starlets Laurel Bordeaux, Tory Tiara, Holly Pop, and the fusion belly-dance trio Tribella, the show will leave you "punch-drunk with delight."

Shoreline resident Holly Pop was trained at the Evergreen City Ballet and attended Summer Dance Intensives at the American Ballet Theatre and the Joffrey Ballet. She has performed in Seattle Opera’s productions of Rigoletto and Die Fledermaus, the Atomic Bombshell’s Lost in Space!, and joined the cast of Land of the Sweets: the Burlesque Nutcracker in 2011 as Janet the Snowflake. This is her third foray into burlesque.
