The Vertical Sideshow presents “GISELLE” July 28th-29th (CHICAGO)

The Vertical Sideshow

July 28 & 29 @ 10pm at Uptown Underground

$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.

CHICAGO – Giselle- July 28-29

   The Vertical Side Show is a non-stop, fully immersive mash-up of music, dance, burlesque, theater, drag, and circus arts. Every show is different and features a wide range of performance styles keeping the audience guessing what’s coming next and where to look. The Vertical Side Show showcases multiple award-winning performers linked together in a seamless neo-vintage narrative that has been described as “gonzo” and “sleekly sensual”
