We’re all a little “starstruck” when it comes to our favorite movie stars. But nobody does it better — or more hilariously — than musical funnymen Captain Smartypants. From silent film star Charlie Chaplin to noisy film star Sandra Bullock, Starstruck shines the spotlight on the movies we love the most, and those we love to roast.

A few of the sights you’ll see on the Starstruck red carpet:

  • A Disney princess duking it out with a Disney villain in song.
  • Batman jazzing it up with three of his nemeses.
  • Oscar-losing songs strutting their stuff in front of Oscar-winning songs.
  • Macho movie hunks proving their sexy mettle to us mere mortals (in song).

Starstruck also includes three very personal “movie song stories” in which movies and their music played a pivotal role in a life-changing event. In one such story, a young gay man decides Beautiful Thing and its Mama Cass soundtrack is the perfect opportunity to dramatically come out to his family. Another story relates a coming-of-age tale that takes place at a Dustin Hoffman drive-in double-feature (Midnight Cowboy and Tootsie), with a painfully awkward double date and a surprising first kiss from the coolest guy in high school.

Starstruck also features a touching tribute to the beautiful actresses that gay men have fallen in love with through the years, a raft of movie mashups (including “Man of Steel Magnolias” and “Jesus Christ Superstar Trek”) and what theme songs from Gravity, Cabin in the Woods, and Prometheus would have been like.

Starstruck is Captain Smartypants’ first feature-length appearance at The Triple Door. With a state-of-the-art sound system, concert grand piano, and full-sized movie screen (for the many videos that accompany the show), you will imbibe and dine in comfort and style (The Triple Door shares a kitchen with Wild Ginger, housed upstairs.) Come see why artists like Suzanne Vega, Vicci Martinez, Rufus Wainwright, Quincy (and Jack) Jones and Sweet Honey in the Rock have earned The Triple Door the title ‘Seattle’s best live music venue.’
