Hot Tickets: Boston

Here are this week’s Hot Tickets in the Boston area. Check back every Thursday at noon, EST for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

TONIGHT! Thursday, December 22 I The Thursday Show with Nate Johnson  Nate Johnson hosts a hand-picked lineup of tremendous stand up comics and hilarious sketch comedy.

Friday, December 23 I Best of Mottley’s Holiday Showcase  No lie – this is a handpicked lineup of the best comics in Boston. These are the acts most likely to break out and go to the next level, and you can come see them all on one show. The Boston comedy scene is probably the best in the country, and these young comics are the best of the best! Come on out and get some laughs in before heading into quality holiday time with the family!

Monday, December 26 I Introduction to Burlesque  This week’s move is Tassel Twirling — the ultimate burlesque trick! You will need to bring pasties with tassels to class for this. There will be a few pairs for sale. If you’re uncomfortable appearing in just pasties, please wear a close-fitting tank-top under your bra and affix the pasties to that. It’s harder to twirl, but we don’t want anyone struggling beyond their comfort level. The week’s striptease lesson is Removing a Bra. Please bring a back-fastening bra to class. See the above note about pasties and comfort levels. That applies here too. For extra fun, students will also be playing with Feather Boas, that quintessential burlesque accessory. If you have a boa, by all means bring it, but they’ll also have some loner boas. Read the rest of this entry »

Hot Tickets: Boston

Every Thursday at noon, EST, Brown Paper Tickets posts upcoming events happening in the Boston area. Here are hot tickets for events coming up. Check back for stellar events that fit the interests of locals and tourists alike.

STARTS TONIGHT!!  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 Brel, Tom Waits, and Rufus Wainwright.  A completely immersive experience, The Boston Babydolls have transformed the site in “The Wrathskellar.”
