Cabaret Red Light’s vaudeville artists transform traditional theater into a saucy mixed-media spectacular, enlivening storytelling with original music, puppets, and burlesque dance. The troupe draws inspiration from The Nutcracker’s early gothic form circa 1816, setting a darker plotline to an all-new score that conjures eerie atmosphere from a mix of classical music, jazz, and recordings of fog machines. Shadow puppets help retell a young lady’s troubling Christmas Eve dreams of living toys and a malignant Rat King, while live dancers intercut the dark tone with flashes of choreographed movement. Spry, saucy ladies in titillating en pointe burlesque occasionally shimmy free of garments and the tyranny of socially constructed notions of propriety in playful strip scenes that the Philadelphia Daily News described as “a hybrid of dance and comedy that is about the tease, rather than the reveal.”
