REDISCOVER the lost arts of tasseling and tease in the glamorous
and seductive company of Immodesty Blaize and Walter's
Burlesque, at the Arts Theatre - but only until July
In a blend of hot charm and high camp, show-stopping routines
are infused with infectious energy, making for a nostalgic, eccentric
and fun-filled musical night out, suitable for all genders as
well as all ages.
Among a host of sensational Burlesque
artistes is the star of the show, Immodesty Blaize, who
has been described as 'a dynamite bombshell, a radiant Ava Gardner-esque
goddess reshaping the hourglass with her natural curves and gravity-defying
She is, undoubtedly, the Queen of British Burlesque.
Her co-star, Walter, is uniquely talented - a male burlesque
star in a woman's world; one whose performances are comic strip,
modern and packed with razor sharp wit.
All this, plus a full complement of gorgeous showgirls, the poignant
and hilarious clowning of Spike Loons and a retro/contemporary
soundtrack which ensures this is no gentle trip down memory lane.
