Green Mountain Cabaret Presents: Leave It To Peepers 4/19/14 - 4/19/14
The 1950’s, a time of innocence, love, and wholesome values. The decade of “I Love Lucy,” “The Honeymooners,” and the classic piece of Americana “Leave It To Peepers.” L.I.T.P. was the groundbreaking series that followed the misadventures of those lovable voyeurs, the Peepers brothers. This coming of age series followed young Leif, Peter, and Thom as they navigated the saccharinely sweet tests of the time, while trying to change their prudish neighbor’s mind on the benefits of burlesque. Join the Peepers, Sugar Shakers, special guest star Maya Melata, and the Green Mountain Cabaret audience as they relive those golden years when burlesque was new and innocent with homage to the 1950’s “Leave It To Peepers.” Green Mountain Cabaret is very excited to announce our special guest and headliner for our April show- Maya Melata of Montreal! Maya Melata is an international Burlesque Star. She is traveling Canada and the US this year after making a name for herself in Montreal, Quebec. She has performed with Scarlett James, at the Montreal Burlesque Festival, with MondeOse, has been written about in several newspapers, and made a debut on Canada National News. Pushing boundaries everyday in the Burlesque World, she wants to bring the seduction of women to the forefront of society. Her charm and seductive nature is irresistible on stage. We welcome her to her first performance in Vermont- this is one show not to be missed! Vermont’s ORIGINAL Neo-Burlesque variety show, Green Mountain Cabaret is the brain-child of Chicago burlesque sensation, Vermont native, and “Kryptonite to Clothing,” Alexa Luthor and her partner in crime, the Verbose Voyeur: Leif Peepers. Alexa and the Sugar Shakers are bringing cabaret into the 21st century with Sass, Class, and Ass-Tronomically talented local performers. Glitz, Glamor, Guffaws, and more abound in this cabaret that reminds you how fantastically fun burlesque can be. Green Mountain Cabaret is guaranteed to warm the cockles of your heart (and other areas). And remember, when you visit Green Mountain Cabaret, Enjoy the View! Ticket link:
