Practically enslaved and in rags, the boobalicious Sinderella lives with her wicked stepmother and two jealous stepsisters who try to keep her from attending the royal burlesque ball at Pink Taco Palace. Although her fairy godmother magically makes her wish of going to the ball come true (“A twerk is a wish your booty makes!”) and helps her to win the heart of the “shagalicious” Prince Charming, who’s having trouble with his glass zipper, the beautiful Sinderella must face the wrath of her stepfamily when her godmother’s magic spell wears off at midnight. This comedic burlesque fairy tale reminds us that a good girl is just a bad girl who’s never been caught.
Half variety show, half musical and all entertainment, “Sinderella and the Glass Zipper” is the fourth burlesque adaptation written by Jade Esteban Estrada, formally the playwright-in-residence at Prohibition Theatre in Houston, Texas. Past credits include “Tales of a Hard Nut” (a burlesque adaptation of “The Nutcracker”), “The Masque of the Red Death” and “Eat Me,” (a burlesque adaptation of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland”). Original burlesque narratives include “Hollywood Havana” (Perth Fringe World Festival) and “How Burlesque Saved Christmas” (Gibson Guitar Lounge at Maggie Mae’s).
