The Soiled Dove

A circus ont he Alameda waterfront.


The Soiled Dove, a four-course dinner vaudeville circus show, recently had to relocate because — you guessed it — it’s former venue (Cellspace in San Francisco) closed due to a new development project. But in a less familiar ending to a typical story, it’s producer Mike Gaines then traveled to Italy and bought a 12,000-square-foot circus tent, which is now set up on the Alameda waterfront. (If only we all had that opportunity). There, the Vau de Vire Society will once again put on its elaborate burlesque show featuring twirling tutus and titillating dances set inside a “reincarnation of SF’s notorious Barbary Coast red light district.” That means over forty performers and musicians filling out the circular space. Shows will take place Friday, July 15 and Saturday, July 16 at Alameda Point (2153 Ferry Point, Alameda) at 7:30 p.m. The full experience costs $120 per person, but those uninterested in the meal can slip in at 9 p.m. for $45.
