Noveltease Theatre Presents

Noveltease Theatre’s mission is to create community through storytelling by reviving the historical artform 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 bookselling 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!

A Metamodern Prometheus

It was a wet and ungenial summer when Mary Shelley devised the idea for Frankenstein. This fall, Noveltease Theatre stitches together this tale of creation with scenes from the novel itself in an electrifying literary burlesque. Adapted by Fosse Jack and Sailor St. Claire, with choreography by Fosse Jack and Trixie Paprika, and directed by Lulu La Lune, join us at Theatre Off Jackson on October 5-7 for this metatextual romance.

Featuring: Sailor St. Claire, Fosse Jack, Onyx Asili, Polly Wood, Miss Elaine Yes, Al Lykya, Jesse Belle-Jones, Carson St. Clair, and Dulce D'Jour.
