Pirate burlesque aboard the tall ship Gazela

Buffer

On today’s podcast, we are joined by Shoshanna Ruth Green and Cubby Altobelli of burlesque troupe The Seven Deadly Seas for a little scripted “yes, and-ing.” We talk about their upcoming production, The Greater of Two Evils, on the barquentine Gazela, which is once more ready to board after a two-year repair hiatus.

The show, a full-length burlesque play, takes a look at present-day politics through the eyes of real-life pirates Calico Jack Rackham, Anne Bonney, and Mary Reed. At this theater-in-the-round and under-the-stars experience, our antiheroes drink, fight, sing, and, yes, strip. The Seven Deadly Seas are an offshoot of the much-loved and dearly departed Cabaret Red Light. Proceeds from this show will help support the Philadelphia Ship Preservation Guild’s efforts to restore and maintain the historic Tall Ship Gazela and Tug Jupiter.
