HOUSE OF THEE UNHOLY
“Tell him what you told me,” demanded my friend Leo.
“What did I tell you?” I asked.
“About the show, House of Thee UnHoly,” he hinted, trying to jog my troubled memory. “You said it waaaasss …”
“Great?” I asked.
“NO! You said it waaaassss,” he said a little more slowly followed by a long pregnant pause.
“I don’t know,” I was now fully disappointed in myself. “One of the best burlesque shows in the world?”
“Well, yeah, but you said it was … dirty …” he started to reveal my statement.
“Oh! Right! ‘Dirty dirty dirty.’ House of Thee UnHoly is dirty, dirty, dirty!” I practically squealed, so pleased to have accessed my lost thought.
“Right!” everyone at our table laughed and applauded.
“Well, then,” Dan, Leo’s boyfriend said, “If it’s ‘dirty dirty dirty, I’m in.”
And with that, our party of revelers pulled out their phones and booked four tickets to the explosive, drug-inspired, musically compelling – and dirty dirty dirty – House of Thee UnHoly, running March 12 through 16 at The Triple Door in Seattle.
Creative director paulanow (you might remember her as Paula the Swedish Housewife) is bringing back the show following a three-year hiatus after dedicated fans badgered her to bring back the burlesque show that celebrates the ‘70s with mind-blowing music, T&A that does a lot more than shake, rattle and roll, and moments that can make a bold man blush.
Tapping some of Seattle’s finest theatrical, musical, costume, set design, burlesque and dance talent, the show features outlandish druids, Vikings, Hindu goddesses … and that’s just the beginning. And if you’re a Led Zeppelin fan, well, prepare yourself for some mind-bendingly great music.
See the video teaser below.
The show runs 7 and 10 p.m. Wednesday, March 12 through Saturday, March 15, and 5 and 8 p.m. Sunday, March 16. Tickets range from $25 to $45. For more information or to book tickets, check out The Triple Door.
And be prepared for an outrageous trip.
