Hey Blogbees 😀
I went along to the Best of Burlesque show with the Edinburgh Fringe festival during the weekend 🙂 It was at venue 3 in Assembly George Square gardens as stated in Avenue Q one of 273 venue locations with the Edinburgh Fringe.
How I LOVE BURLESQUE! Just like my favourite sexy cartoon character Betty Boop Burlesque represents – Sexy, flirty and vintage / retro!
Victorian Burlesque was first showcased in London theatres from the 1830s to the 1890s. Founded by Britain, the pinup sexy entertainment dancing style then went across the world.
I am one of the lucky Queen bee’s that went to the famous Moulin Rouge in Paris, France in 2012. One of the best shows I have seen! The girls were all stuuning! All model-like live air brushed perfection! The team of 50plus dancers had amazing stage presence and really put on a show! Each set had a different theme for example can-can, Arabian nights and old Hollywood. No pictures were allowed to be taken 😦 But it was such a fabulous trip!
The modern burlesque troupe – Pussycat Dolls
Another thing that’s associated with Burlesque is my favourite girl group as the Pussy Cat dolls founded by Robin Antin one of the original girls from the modern burlesque troupe in Las Vegas. The Modern Burlesque Troupe, The Pussycat dolls home to Vegas a private lounge for burlesque dancing entertainment club. PCD represent a modern perspective of burlesque entertainment.
The best of Burlesque at the Edinburgh Fringe 2014
The best of Burlesque was in the George Square Garden. The Gardens was open to the public with security at the door (over 18s only). First time going to a social environment during the fringe, it was fun! People are so friendly and the atmosphere was really laid back especially for a Saturday night in Edinburgh!
Tickets were available in an electronic form which is amazing to keep environmentally friendly. The show had 5 performers from all over the globe (Scotland, France and even South America) All the ladies represent real woman with real curves. I loved how confident these women were, they had there own ‘party trick’ as such. All dressed up in costumes and were amazing entertainment. The Host was hilarious! Picking on the public and ensured the audience was involved in his magic tricks.
I thoroughly enjoyed The Best of Burlesque! Mixed with adult comedy it is definitely a show to go see during the Edinburgh Fringe.
