Wrathskellar Tales
Bar Harbor
Just got home from opening night of Wrathskellar Tales. This is the newest incarnation of a Halloween show by the Boston Beautease, a burlesque troupe that I am friends with several of. This is their attempt to mix burlesque performance, creepy Halloween sensibilities, and the immersive theatre of Sleep No More. I can't say it's 100% successful, but definitely a good first effort, and worth encouraging. It's smaller than SNM, in both physical space and number of performers, but they make good use of what they've got. And, of course, it's also considerably closer and cheaper than SNM is currently, so if you've been jonesing for a fix, this is a must-see. And there's no other show which will give you such a close-up look at so much scantily-clad gyrating pulchritude, so that's definitely a point in its favor! Recommended.
