The beautiful historic Merchant’s Hall was the perfect venue for this Berlin based burlesque cabaret act, taking you back to an era of glamour and sophistication.
The show starts as four leggy dancers wearing Basques, stocking and suspenders made their way to the stage flirting and teasing with the audience along the way.
Lola La Tease, the founder of the group was the perfect host for the evening taking the audience on a journey of the golden age of glamour and femininity. The rule of the evening was that the more noise you made the more clothes would be removed.
Tara D’Arson, Rose Noire and Lexi Stellar teased the audience with their saucy routines that included a seductive Disney Princess who had some surprising presents in her gift box, a naughty and flirty drunken lush who sashayed her way through the audience with her bottle of vodka, a seductive school teacher and day at the races that included whips and high leg flicks amongst other things. I particularly enjoyed Lexi Stellar’s playful and comical performance involving a bee at a picnic (no surprises where the bee ended up).
These ex ballerinas brought class and sophistication to their burlesque performance. However, there were times when the comic element didn’t really take off as successfully as their outfits.
Overall, it was quite a predicable performance with Lola and the girls having to prompt the audience for a reaction along the way (Lola suggesting that perhaps they were not drunk enough to get involved but at these bar prices I’m not surprised).
