Marxiano Productions' Bohemia at The Triple Door a beautiful classical work of erotic art

BOHEMIA
THE TRIPLE DOOR
Through January 26


Last year was the triumphant debut of Bohemia at the Triple Door, a big splashy production of incredible dance numbers, glamorous costumes with an intriguing story and brought to you by Marxiano Productions, returned this past weekend.

Marxiano Productions' triumphant production of Bohemia which debuted at The Triple Door last year returned to The Triple Door mainstage January 17 for a nine-day performance run through January 26. It's a big splashy production with incredible dance numbers, glamorous costumes and an intriguing story that you won't want to miss.

Bohemia is a musical set in 1890s Prague that combines stories of historic artists like Sarah Bernhardt, Frédéric Chopin and George Sand interwoven with beautiful green fairies, aerial numbers, dance, burlesque, classical piano battles, comedy, and original songs by Siano, Peachey and Dayton Allemann.

The story centers around the famous Czech composer, Antonín Dvorák (Siano), who has hit a wall prior to composing his magnum opus. In a move of desperation he turns to a bottle of absinthe for inspiration. In this macabre and mystical dream cabaret, Dvorák is visited by the ghost of the late composer Frédéric Chopin (Peachey) and a host of scantily clad green fairies. Chopin and many other famous Bohemians guide Dvorák as they search for the true source of inspiration and grasp at artistic immortality.

Bravo to the gender-bending performance of Peachey's Chopin dancing with his lover George (Claire Marx). Bravo as well to the closeness of the dancing between the two male fairies as performed by Hisam Goueli and Bo Mellinger. This year, Siano got to cuddle up with both Goueli and Mellinger. I also appreciated the added humor that was absent from last year's production.

From the staging to the classical music this production is pure art. While the sexiness of burlesque stars Goueli and Pamela Turpin (as Sarah Bernhardt) is appropriately chaste on the main stage, their dance behind the curtain allowed them to reveal themselves more explicitly and the audience was teased with erotic beauty.

Goueli also portrays Dvorák's artistic rival, Alphonse Mucha, which clearly demonstrates Goueli is also a great actor as well as a dancer.

This classic production is everything that dinner theater is meant to be. I hope to see more shows like this at the The Triple Door.

Bohemia continues at The Triple Door (216 Union St.) through Saturday, January 26 at 7pm and 10pm. For more information, visit tripledoor.net or phone (206) 838-4333.
