An Evening of Burlesque’s 100-show, debut production celebrated its finale with a critically-acclaimed European tour.

“For 2013,” says show producer Michael Taylor, “an all-new cast has been assembled, comprising of the cream of British burlesque performers.”

Sashaying Royal Academy-trained burlesque bombshells are promised: “Slipping into exotic character as smoothly as they slip out of the most exotic couture costumes ever to grace the stage,” says Michael.
