Burlesque to Broadway heads to Seattle
by Shaun Knittel - SGN Associate Editor

Burlesque to Broadway Triple Door February 24-25

With one show-stopping number after another, Burlesque to Broadway splashes onto The Triple Door stage for three nights only, starring Quinn Lemley, her backup gals and an intoxicating 10-piece big band.

This team of musicians and performers light up the stage and bring the audience into the worlds of Minsky's Burlesque Theatre, The Ziegfeld Follies, Broadway and beyond in this fast-paced theatrical concert.

Burlesque to Broadway dazzles audiences with sequined and feathered costumes, music, and jokes that are all about the tease. This glamorous Vegas-style production - with gorgeous girls who pay homage to the music, vaudeville humor, and the world of burlesque and Broadway - lets the audience leave reality behind.

Hot off a sold-out run in Athens, Greece, Quinn Lemley channels the 'queen of comedy' Fanny Brice, the outrageous Bette Midler, Sally Rand and her fan, Seattle's own Gypsy Rose Lee, and others that defined burlesque and illuminated Broadway.

Star of the critically acclaimed The Heat is On (celebrating the life of Rita Hayworth), Quinn Lemley is an international favorite from New York's B.B. King Blues Club to The Half Note in Athens, Greece, where she was celebrated by the media as 'The Iconic Face of The Half Note.' Having appeared in many of the top theaters of the world across the U.S., Europe, and China, she has performed Burlesque to Broadway at L.A.'s Haugh Center for the Arts, New York's Lehman Center, and to sold-out audiences at the Kravis Center and Sunrise Theatre.

Tony Award and Drama Desk Award-winning director Joe Hardy takes you on a ride through the music of burlesque, Broadway, and beyond, with show-stopping numbers from Sweet Charity, Gypsy, Cole Porter's Leave it to Me, and My Man, to name a few. Joe Hardy received the Drama Desk Award for You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown and won the Tony Award for Best Direction of a Play for Child's Play.

Come share the fun as vivacious Quinn Lemley, along with her sizzling backup girls and big band, sing and dance up a storm with such unforgettable hits such as 'Hey Big Spender,' 'Ten Cents a Dance,' 'Let Me Entertain You,' 'My Heart Belongs to Daddy,' and many other surprises.

Audiences from New York to L.A. have met Burlesque to Broadway with standing ovations, and now it is Seattle's turn to celebrate the art of the tease!

Burlesque to Broadway plays The Triple Door for six performances only, February 24-25. Tickets are available now for this three-night engagement. Order over the phone by calling 206-838-4333, in person at the box office at 216 Union St., or online at www.thetripledoor.com.
