"Rebecca M. Davis is one of those actresses whom when you see her, you say to yourself: 'Oh yeah. I've seen her in lots of stuff. She's really good. What's her name again?' and you'll search the program. And for good reason: She's done numerous stage presentations of all sorts, and has appeared on the big screen as well. Davis, a native Oregonian, has appeared on the Seattle stage for over three decades, and her dedication and talent are paying off."

The Burl-X-Files: The Truth Is Down There

The Burl-X-Files: The Truth Is Down There
Burlesque Inspired by the X-Files

Date: August 29-31, 2013

 

Advertising:
We invite you to Spooky Mulder and Agent Scully's basement office from which they investigate sexy alien abductions, salacious paranormal activity and other strange unexplained phenomenon. What chilling monster-of-the-week will they encounter? Will the Lone Gunmen lend a helpful hand? What forces, or cigarette-smoking fiend, will conspire to keep our leads apart?

Come help us celebrate the 20th anniversary of the premier of the landmark television series with acts inspired by the dark, kitschy, campy, and angst-filed sci-fi classic. Remember the 90s? Remember how government cover-ups involving UFOs, implausible myth arcs, and virus carrying bees were all rage? The Burl-X-Files will be one part nostalgia, one part celebration of fandom, and one part indulgence of not-so-secret fantasies with a cast of Seattle's finest X-Files obsessed burlesque talent.

  • In the past, Rebecca has done a literal interpretation of Cher's "Believe", to great acclaim.

  • While she was in Spokane in 2009 (performing "Doubt"), Rebecca phoned then-artistic director Bret Fetzer, who held his mobile phone to a microphone for the audience in Seattle, while Rebecca read a list she'd compiled of things "Overheard in Spokane".

  • In 2011, Rebecca returned in-person to 60 Seconds Max.
