Tickets available now at Brown Paper Tickets

Once again the maelstrom has settled over Seattle and the winds threaten to tear apart all that isn’t secure. Come down to the Re-Bar to get out of the storm and stay for the stories. Join us for burlesque tribute to the creativity of Neil Gaiman. He’s written for comic books and authored many novels, movie scripts and teleplays. His stories have taken us from the lands of fantasy to the stars in science fiction tales. That is the just the beginning of what you may find waiting for you in Worlds’ End.

“Worlds’ End turns three and we’re celebrating,” said the show’s producer, Miss Violet DeVille. “With some new takes on stories we’ve told before and we have new ones that are eagerly waiting for you.”

Worlds’ End Burlesque Revue is July 17th and 18th at the Re-Bar.

Wheel of Tease Returns for 4 Times the Fun

December 2, 2014 at 6:52 PMVioletDeVille

CopyrightThere are two things you don’t see a lot of in neo-burlesque today: live music and on-the-spot -improvisation. When these two elements do come to pass, the result is a rare and beautiful thing. On the Friday, February6th eight performers, some burlesque stars and a few fresh faces, will take the stage and create spontaneous performances using props and song chosen by members of the audience. The soundtrack to this “kamikaze burlesque” will be performed live by Seattle’s only electro-swing band Good Co. Join us for a night of spur-of-the-moment striptease and silly, sexy fun. 

And we're bringing this madness to you four times in 2015.

Sir Eddie Van Glam is back, leading audience members to the stage and helping them select the music Good Co will play and the prop the performer has to dance with. 

Each show has a different cast of performers. Some are local, some are from other states, and a few are from another country altogether. 

February 6th features Reggie Bügmüncher and Kat De Lac from the Keystone state of Pennsylvania . They'll be joining Lowa de Boom Boom, Miss Violet DeVille, Absurdity Belle, Jesus la Pinga, Morgan LaMay, and The Black Sparrow. 

May 8th stars the Paris Original, and features Bettie Fever from Vancouver, B.C., Trixie Paprika, Miss Violet DeVille, Artemis Lark, Morgue Anne, Razzberry Rocket, and Dahlia Ste. cyr.

August 8th brings Vancouver, B.C. starlets Faux Foxy and Ruby Slickeur to our stage along with the local flavor of Cherry "Killer" Tomatoes, Miss Violet DeVille, Bella Luna, Kristina Weena, Mandy Flame, and Verity Germaine.

November sets us up with Rock Hart, the international boylesque sinsation from Edinburgh, Scotland and Port Angeles' own Siouxzie Queen Gypsy and featuring performances from Sara Dipity, Whisper De Corvo, Cirquesse, Miz Melancholy, Magnolia Monroe, and Nickey Bourbon.

What about other captains found in television, books, and movies? We have ten captains to put to the test and we aim to settle that little score. And then some with your help. Who will you promote to commodore?

“I think Weird Al summed it up best,” said creator Miss Violet DeVille, “when he said it was the only question he thought was hard in ‘White and Nerdy’. The audience really enjoyed picking their favorites captains.”

Let the Mayhem Begin!

October 2, 2014 at 12:08 PMVioletDeVille

CopyrightOctober is the season of All Hallows' Eve. The nights grow longer and leaves change color and fall from the branches onto the ground. It's that time of year when we celebrate the macabre and the dark under the full moon. On the last Saturday of October join Purple Devil Productions for a celebration of the monstrous and frightening.

"Monsters have fascinated me since I was young," said creator Violet DeVille. "While the other girls were playing with dolls and learning the basics of day-to-day makeup, I was in the kitchen pouring plaster molds and painting foam latex pulled hot from my mom's oven. Over all I think monsters and horror stories gives us a way to confront our fears in a positive way that we can control."

Monsters, Merkins, and Mayhem is October 26th at the Re-Bar located at 1114th Howell St. in Seattle. The doors open at 6:30 pm and the show begins at 7:30 pm. Mister Bawdy is our Master of Ceremony with Scarlett O'Hairdye, Miss Violet DeVille, Artemis Lark, and Maggie McMuffin. Tickets are available on at Brown Paper Tickets.

Rule 34 - If you can think of it, there is porn of it.

April 2, 2014 at 11:50 PMVioletDeVille


Like physics, the internet has its own set of “natural” laws. The most exciting: Rule 34, which states that if you can think of it, there is sexually explicit material of it. Therein lies our inspiration. With a steaming hot cast of burlesque’s finest, Rule 34 explores the deepest depths of our imaginations and the interwebs that bring them to light. 

“Why you think the net was born? Porn! Porn! Porn!” – Trekkie Monster, from the hit Broadway musical Avenue Q.

Over 30% of all Internet traffic contains porn and uses 6 times the bandwidth of the streaming media site Hulu. We think Trekkie Monster might be onto something.

Rule 34 is May 10th at the Re-Bar in Seattle. Mister Bawdy is our Master of Ceremonies, our Potentate of Porn, our Sultan of Smut, and our Dictator of Dirt. Following his lead is Tamara the Trapeze Lady, Boom Boom L’Roux, Whisper De Corvo, Miss Violet DeVille, Maggie McMuffin, Cinnamon Maxxine, Magnolia Monroe, Morgue Anne, Dee Lushious, and Ms. Audrey Rugburn! The doors open at 6:30 pm and seating begins at 7:00 pm with the showing starting at 7:30 pm. Tickets start at $13 and are available through and for $15 at the box office day of show.
