Glitzy fun with Burlesque babes
THE Burlesque revival sweeping across the British Isles will tease and tantalise as it reaches the Villa Marina this month.
If you are up for a fabulous new experience, the island’s very first Burlesque International Festival will add a bit of glitz and glamour into your winter diary.
Bursting on to the front covers of magazines and propelling names such as Dita Von Teese on to the international celebrity scene, Burlesque has made a renewed impression on the cultural landscape.
The show coming to Douglas on Thursday, February 21, will comprise eight international award-winning burlesque artists who have performed in Las Vegas, Paris, Monte Carlo and London. They are: Betty the Naked Showgirl whose look oozes sensuality; Portuguese belly dancer Veronique Divine; Eliza Delite, winner of the UK Females Crown at the World Burlesque Games 2012; winner of the 2012 Triple Crown at the games, Anna the Hulagan, who will whip you into a fire frenzy with her mesmerizing and sensual strip-fire hula hoop act; vaudeville freak show diva Vivid Angel; the old-fashioned Scarlett Belle and Frankii Wilde, who has the innocence of a modern day Marilyn with the allure and seduction of Veronica Lake. Cheeky compere Duke De Milo, with his luxurious lashes, opulent furs and a tongue like a razor wit chainsaw, will host the evening.
The show is produced by the ‘King of Burlesque’ Chaz Royal, who is behind numerous shows across the States and Europe, including the London and Amsterdam Burlesque Festivals.
The show starts at 8pm.
Tickets cost £27.50 or £30 for table seats. They are available from the box office on 600555 or at www.villagaiety.com
