Officially Britain’s biggest burlesque extravaganza — a quarter of a million people have now seen this show — An Evening of Burlesque hits Glasgow this week.

The ever-so-cheeky production reveals the secrets of the art of burlesque to delighted audiences across the UK and Europe.

Producer Michael Taylor describes the show, saying: “Its sparkling glamour, physical humour and a dynamic score. The show features corsets, killer heels and stockings aplenty — and that’s just the audience who come to see the show. It’s a spectacle that sparkles from its elaborately-decorated headdresses to its immaculately varnished toes, and audiences are predominantly female. Also, we’re pleased to report that, with a prize for the best-dressed member of the audience, theatregoers revel in dressing up for the occasion.”

The show itself sparkles with couture costumes recalling the golden era of burlesque.

It is hailed as the most glamorous show on tour with sultry vocals, breathtaking choreography, mischief, magic, frivolity and fun.

“It’s all tease, no sleaze,” says Michael. The show combines musical and theatrical parody, cutting-edge variety, magic, comedy and dance with the art of striptease.”

With an all-star line-up of acts, this show never fails to please.

Songstres Ivy Paige is commere, introducing The Folly Mixtures — a burlesque quartet choreographed to thrill; Tabitha Taboo — charming, flirtatious and titillating, she’s the sweetheart showgirl with a very naughty side; Andromeda Circus — aerial artiste, fire juggler; and the brilliantly clever king of psychic stand-up Peter Antoniou.

Theatre Royal Glasgow. Thursday, November 13 at 8pm. Tickets £14.40+fee from easytheatres.com. Discount for theatrecard holders.
