article imageOp-Ed: London Contemporary Burlesque At Its Best Special

By Edwin Ladaga     Apr 10, 2011 in Entertainment
The Hurly Burly Show at London's Garrick theatre is a combination of erotic moves and graceful artistry. It is a fusion of cabaret with modern day fashion and popular music.
A century ago, burlesque was considered a questionable form of entertainment where dirty old men would look at women of questionable morale. But now, burlesque has undergone a revival. It is considered quirky and sexy.
In the audience, I could see men and women of equal proportion in the audience. There were laughters in the audience as Polly Rae and her Hurly Burly girls perform short scenes about modern life like phone sex innuendo, ball exercise in the gym or a very spectacular circus diabolo act. It even showed scenes about the modern geisha and the french court. There is no doubt that William Baker, who directs Kylie Minogue's performances, has put burlesque on London's theatre scene.
It is hilarious and fun to watch and the same time, thrilling and exotic. It is definitely one of a kind and the first major burlesque show in West End London. Burlesque is now mainstream and not only available at a gentlemen's exclusive club.
