Lola @ Can Can Culinary Cabaret (Seattle – Pike Place)
Aug 10 @ 7:00 pm

Inspired by the lyrics of Barry Manilow’s Grammy Award-winning song “Copacabana,” Can Can’s summer show masterfully blends gender bending comedy and flirtatous sex appeal.

It’s 1970 at the Copacabana where famed showgirl Lola and bartender Tony are on the fritz after a lengthy tumultuous affair. Lola’s fellow performers are caught in the middle of the relationship drama and torn between their loyalty to Lola and their drinking buddy, Tony. Rico the suave, womanizing flair bartender from Fuegos Mucho Caliente (the Copacabana’s rival restaurant) has caught wind of the break-up and plans his pursuit of Lola. When Tony hears of Rico and Lola’s entanglement, he crafts a plan to win Lola back. As Rico and Tony’s rivalry escalates, fate will decide who wins the hand of the prized showgirl.

Down the Rabbit Hole – Cafe Nordo @ The Knife Room (Seattle – Pioneer Square)
Aug 11 @ 7:30 pm

Alice and friends return to The Knife Room at Nordo this spring with the smash hit audience favorite “Down the Rabbit Hole”. This Karaoke Cabaret of Nonsense features immersive art installations for you to wander throughs such as “The Mad Hatter’s Tearoom” where your salad is plucked from thin air, the “Wonderland Menagerie” where the Mad Hatter and March Hare serve teapots of mushroom soup with goat cheese “sugar cubes”, and “The Infinity Garden of Living Flowers”, where the daisies want you to look your best in the mirrored and instagrammable world. Themed cocktail confections abound in this romping and roaming feast for the senses.

The story centers around all things wonderland – your favorite tales like “The Walrus and the Carpenter” and “The Stolen Tart” are set to original music, or played out with you as judge and jury with hilarious consequences. The entire evening is MC’d by the White Rabbit, as he belts out inspired hits from Jefferson Airplane and Gnarls Barley and encourages the Mad Hatter, March Hare, and Queen of Hearts to sing their favorite tunes.

A Pop-Up Tasting Menu is included in the ticket price.

When love is like a flame, what could possibly put it out?

Middle-aged couple Ruby and Early are happy in their new marriage (for starters, the sex is amazing!). Sure, they’re struggling with unemployment and numbingly dull manual labor, but they have each other and they’ve just moved into a new apartment. Then the next-door neighbor pays them a call …

The Shattered Glass Project is a theatre company with the mission to amplify the voices of theatre artists who have been marginalized on the basis of their gender or sex, including but not limited to cis and trans women, non-binary folks, and trans-masculine/trans-feminine folks, by providing unique opportunities to create and grow professionally.
