There will also be burlesquers doing there thang (sorry): Miss Glory Pearl, Sabrina Sweepstakes and Rubyyy Jones.
Not forgetting the burlesque legend Jo King, who’s in the founder of the London Academy of Burlesque and Burlexe Creative Director. Burlexe began with four sold out shows in June 2010 and has only got bigger and better.
With interest growing internationally from the Christina Aguilera and Cher flick Burlesque and the up coming opening of Dita von Teese’s speakeasy in London’s Pigalle Bar there is no better time to indulge your interest in burlesque.
Monologues in the show have been created from real interviews with current and past burlesque stars to reveal what it means to be a performer and subsequently what it means to be a woman.
