We’re Livestreaming the ‘Nutcracker Rouge’ Burlesque Tonight


It’s a week till Christmas and you’ve got your mittens full. You can hardly be expected to find time for frivolities.

So we’re bringing some (half-naked) holiday cheer your way.

Tuesday night on Facebook Live, we’re broadcasting our favorite scene from Company XIV’s Nutcracker Rouge. A decadent rendition of Tchaikovsky’s festive ballet, this is the kind of adults-only holiday fare that won’t put you to sleep … but will certainly give you sweet, sweet dreams.

After a preview last week at the Irondale Theater, our team was unanimous in the scene we want to bring you. It’s got au naturel acrobatics and operatics, is barely appropriate for Facebook Live, and generally makes Moulin Rouge look like Pee-wee’s Playhouse.

So invite your friends, pop some Champagne and pull up InsideHook’s Facebook page on the biggest screen you’ve got.

The show starts Tuesday, December 20th around 9 p.m (EST).
