January 12th – March 26th • Wednesdays – Sundays • 7 pm

It’s the season of love, lust, and everything in between. The only way to celebrate is decadence. The Can Can, one of Seattle’s best spots for burlesque (and ghosts if you’re into that sorta thing), put together a brand-spankin’ new bespoke show for the Valentine’s Day season. Welcome to House of Hearts

The story centers on the Land of Broken Hearts and its annual gathering, the aptly named Broken Hearts Ball, where feeling or even speaking about love is not only banned but punishable by death. This is all fine and good until the queen’s daughter falls in love with the town fool at the ball. Will the queen change the rules to save her daughter? And what happens when chaos falls on the Land of Broken Hearts? I won’t spoil it, but expect lots of red and pink glittery lingerie, nipple pasties, and feathery boas. 

An important thing to remember is that the Can Can has a full menu and bar, and the food and drinks are very good. (See: the beignets.) If you shell out for one of the higher ticket prices, you’ll receive various perks, from preferred seats to entire three-course meals. Life is short and love is worth some extravagance whenever you can spare it.
