Review: House of Burlesque, Kings Theatre, Southsea

Portsmouth Players in rehearsal for The Full Monty

Portsmouth Players dare to bare as they go The Full Monty at The Kings Theatre

Have your say

Stormy weather didn’t stop hundreds of Burlesque devotees attending an evening of delectable decadence.

As always, Mr Joe Black’s House of Burlesque delivered some superb performances.

A cornucopia of tassels, feathers and g-strings, Burlesque is about ‘the tease’ not just the striptease.

Bruise Violet opened the show with a high-energy routine featuring flaming, twirling tassels.

The Boylesques (men who perform Burlesque), Mr Pustra, Aaran Shurvinton, Terms of Unnervment and Count Adriano Fettucini were also highly entertaining.

The highlight of the show was the breathtakingly beautiful choreographed routines from Vicky Butterfly.

Her iconic ‘Faberge egg’ and ‘mirrored moon’ performances held the audience spellbound.
