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! opens Noveltease’s inaugural season “Fact, Fallacy, Fantasy,” where reality and reverie converge through burlesque literature. As a new company dedicated to reviving and revising the art of literary burlesque for contemporary audiences, Noveltease’s second production adapts Jane Austen’s satirical burlesque of gothic romance, N orthanger Abbey, with camp, jazz, and humor this fall on November 15 & 16.
