The newest BurlyQ act on the PDX scene, Booze L'Rouge's Teeny Tiny Cabaret was conceived when two young beauties, inspired towards strip-tease during an experimental acting class, decided to invite their talented song/ dance/ comedy friends to join them as they classily remove their clothes on a tiny stage in their 1920s SW home, which was once a sorority house, but is now finally out of Beta.
Expect a program peppered with hints of belly dancing and all manner of sexy character-driven weirdness from a duo whose past performances have included riffs on voodoo possession and drunken brides removing more than their veils, plus a messy sapphic fruit-feed where "apples represent [their] goodies", so expect Matt Damon to be conducting exit interviews asking how you liked dem.
L'Rouge has also sadly curated a cadre of non-naked acts, including MC/performer Busty Rose, a slinky hula-hooper, a lovely piano/uke player creating "Regina Spektor-ish" sounds, three story-based stand-up routines, and even a special "masked dance" performance from a veteran of Imago Theater, though again, he won't be taking off his clothes, so don't worry about seeing any big little things.
While next month will see the premiere of L'Rouge stylings in a bigger venue, they have opened a limited number of seats for Thrillist readers to get in on the Teeny Tiny action before anyone else, and hope you'll stick around until "the neighbors will be bothered" with DJ'd tunes and adult beverages, enough of which will make anyone feel like an Alpha male.
