The Wau Wau Sisters Are Naked As The Day They Were Born Again! 4 **** - One4Review

The bawdy babes from America are back in Edinburgh for a short run in Fringe 2013 and they are badder than ever.
Truly living up to their show title, half-sisters Adrienne Truscott and Tanya Gagne burst onto stage neked as jaybirds offering sweets to the audience before explaining that the show must go on even though their costumes haven’t arrived. Still unadorned they show some of their circus skills in balancing and trapeze, garnering rapturous applause along the way.
The missing costumes do finally arrive and the acroband section starts with the ladies playing country and western music while balancing on each other.
Audience volunteers were acquired and got fully involved as ‘props’ for these lascivious lady showcased their many talents all done very tongue in cheek but with enough smut and innuendo to keep the pot boiling.
Of course the sample of trapeze action previously was just a taster, as these top class singers really went for it in a display that drew gasps of awe and admiration from the admiring crowd.
The show has an appealing rough and ready feel about it, but I was just going to say it’s the best fun you can have with your clothes on, but remembered a lot of the time they didn’t!!
