Boston Babydolls: The Wrathskellar
The Boston Babydolls present a very dark shade of burlesque in this archetypal underworld tavern where hearts, promises, and crockery are broken with abandon and secrets are hidden just below the surface.
The Wrathskellar is just off an alley in Queen Victoria's London or down a flight of stairs that Mack the Knife might have tread. In the dim limelight, a chanteuse sings forlornly of a lost love, while The Diva plots revenge for some imagined slight and The Lost Girl wonders if she'll ever get home.
A departure from The Boston Babydolls usual mix of bubbly fun and retro glamour, The Wrathskellar is a moody whirlpool of sinister dirges, predatory laments, and torch songs in a minor key. Instead of big band and swing, the soundtrack for The Wrathskellar features atmospheric and evocative works from Ute Lemper, Jacques Brell, Tom Waits, and Rufus Wainwright.
Cabaret Tickets are the best seats in the house and offer food and (non-alcoholic) beverage service from The Wrathskellar menu, served by our unique wait staff. Guests are seated at tables of four, and smaller parties may be combined at the discretion of the management.
Balcony Tickets are up in the balcony. This isn't rocket science. There's no food or beverage service up there.
Special Preview, Tuesday, Oct. 26: Tuesday night is an open dress rehearsal followed by a Q & A with members of the cast. All tickets are only $5. Come and see how the sausage is made!
