Noveltease Theatre Presents

Noveltease Theatre’s mission is to create community through storytelling by reviving the historical art-form of literary burlesque. They stage unique adaptations of classic works of theatre and literature in order to reclaim and rework the canon from a sex-positive, queer, feminist, and anti-racist standpoint that enlivens and transforms classic works for contemporary audiences.

As an official bookseller partner, Nook & Cranny is excited to offer exclusive thematic collections that will be available for purchase at each Noveltease show. Check out the list below for a sneak peek!

(NOTE: Most collection titles will be exclusively available at our Noveltease vendor booth during the run of their show. They will be available for in-store and online purchase after closing weekend!)
