After a year hiatus, the third installment of Whedonesque Burlesque returns to Seattle with all new acts inspired by the Whedonverse: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Avengers, Firefly, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-a-long Blog, Angel, Agents of SHIELD, and yes, maybe even Cabin in the Woods.

Oh god, oh god, we’re all going to die…of awesome.

Whedonesque Burlesque will explore the sexy, silly, strange, and emotional aspects of fandom through the art of burlesque. Puppets, slayers, demons, and heroes will show us a new side of themselves. Nothing here is real. Nothing here is right.

“Dazzling. Hilariously perverse. Fandom, feminism, and the Whedonverse converged into an event so inspiring I had to be in it the following year.” – Jennifer K. Stuller, editor of Fan Phenomena and Buffy the Vampire Slayer and author of Ink-Stained Amazons and Cinematic Warriors: Superwomen in Modern Mythology

“…the production value of Whedonesque Burlesque exceeded quantitative measure.” Madeline Rider, Seattle Burlesque Press
