The Vertical Sideshow

$20 – $25

TICKETS: https://www.uptownunderground.net/verticalsideshow

Scandal sweeps Uptown Underground this July with a shocking twist on a classic fateful ballet. 
The ugly death of a lovely girl.
But who’s to blame for our dear departed – 
Drowned in shame and broken-hearted?
A shocking and all too soon farewell, 
An unfair fate for the fair Giselle.”
Giselle” is an age-old story ripped from the headlines steeped in torrid love triangles, celebrity rivalries, and tragic consequences. The Vertical Side Show brings its own brand of tabloid sensationalism with a touch of burlesque, dance, circus acts, and dark humor.
