Noveltease Theatre (Noveltease) opens its inaugural season of literary burlesque with a new twist on an old story. ADVENTURE! Marvelous Tales of the Baron Munchausen is adapted from the 1785 book Baron Munchausen’s Narrative of His Marvellous Travels and Campaigns in Russia by Rudolph Erich Raspe. Through a combination of theatrical text and original burlesque choreography, Noveltease takes you on a 90 minute adventure through some truly fantastic tales that must be seen to be believed.
In a series of episodic accounts of his larger-than-life tales, the Baron Munchausen seduces the listener to find reason at the core of fantasy and spectacle. With undersea lobster trees, fanciful flights atop cannonballs, dalliances with goddesses, and cherry tree-horned stags, the performing company of ADVENTURE! each take up the Baron’s mantle to challenge the status quo by weaving unbelievable stories through burlesque dance.
ADVENTURE! will be performed on April 12 & 13 at The Auditorium at U-Heights, where Noveltease is a resident company in the U-Heights Theatre Alliance. Directed by Cheeky Diamondz and Tootsie Spangles (Deers, Annex Theatre), ADVENTURE! features Noveltease Core Company members Onyx Asili, Jesse Belle-Jones, Fosse Jack, Al Lykya, Trixie Paprika, Sailor St. Claire and Polly Wood. ADVENTURE! is adapted for the stage and choreographed by Fosse Jack, with lighting design by Angelo Domitri.
