All tease no sleaze from Burlesque show

DIRECT from London’s West End, the UK’s first and only touring burlesque show is coming to town.

It will take to the stage in the Caird Hall, Dundee on Friday October 12 for one night only.

Showcasing award-winning talent from across the country, it’s an opportunity to see some of the world’s biggest burlesque stars in the flesh.

Theatregoers are promised corsets, killer heels and stockings aplenty.

“An Evening of Burlesque features an all-star cast of beautiful and elegant performers,” says show producer Michael Taylor.

“Sparkling with couture costumes recalling the golden eras of burlesque, it’s the most glamorous show on tour.”

Michael, who produces other hit stage shows The Magic of Motown and Thank You for the Music, says the production owes its success to a combination of “sultry vocals, breathtaking choreography, mischief, magic, frivolity and fun.

“It’s all tease, no sleaze and for that reason audiences are predominantly female.”

Bringing variety back to the theatre, the show’s combination of musical and theatrical parody, magic, comedy and dance with the art of striptease saw its extensive 2011 UK tour enjoy rave reviews.

An Evening of Burlesque comes to town fresh from an international tour at the beginning of 2012.

“Its content – sparkling glamour, physical humour and a dynamic score need no translation,” says Michael. “There’s a thriving burlesque scene in London’s West End. We’re proud to be bringing the cream of burlesque talent to a far wider audience.”

Stars include: Amber Topaz – the Yorkshire Tease, the leading lady; Kiki Kaboom – the evening’s most welcoming compere; Miss Hotcake Kitty – winner of the Burlesque Idol competition, Slinky Sparkles – as seen on ITV and BBC, renowned for her Monroe-esque curves and Audacity Chutzpah – the award-winning clown Queen of burlesque. For over-18s only.
