Thursday, February 3 to Tuesday, February 14 I Unlucky in Love Unlucky in Love tells the story of a hapless writer examining episodes from his own life as he tries to pen a self-help guide to romance. Unfortunately for him (but fortunately for the audience), what he doesn’t know could fill a book. Calamities of the heart have never been so funny or sexy as they are in this burlesque story of love and misfortune. It’s two hours of teasing, pleasing, romance, and magic all accompanied by the excitement of live music, courtesy of The Unluckiest Band in The World. This Valentines season give your special honey more than a box of chocolate. A performance by New England’s leading burlesque troupe is a saucy gift of love. The line-up includes both veterans of the established troupe and some new members.

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.”
