Swingtime, Catalyst Arts, and Wanderlust Circus Present: THE MATA HARI HUSTLE

Catalyst Arts, Swingtime PDX, and Wanderlust Circus Present:

THE MATA HARI HUSTLE

A Traveling Cabaret Revusical

of song, dance, romance, and MURDER!

Two singing belly dancers, a swing dance duet, a juggling sword-swallower, and a rakish ringmaster enact the tale of three handsome sailors on leave in Paris who tangle with a trio of sexy spies hellbent on homicide!

Will our gullible Gullivers survive their voyage into Vaudeville, or will they be led into the black widow’s web once and for all?

Set to an original soundtrack of vintage swing, with scintillating solos and rip-roaring group numbers aplenty, THE MATA HARI HUSTLE is a bombastic burlesque battle TO THE DEATH!

This six-person vaudeville revue based in Portland, OR, will take to the road mid-May 2012, to spend four weeks dazzling audiences along the West Coast with a variety of sensational acts.
