On Friday, October 19th, I was invited to see the Burlesque-A-Pades at the Soho Playhouse and I was glad that I went. This was the perfect mix between theater, burlesque and variety and there were not many moments where I was either laughing or whistle of fun and joy. If you would like a fun evening out and you want to see something different, Burlesque-A-Pades is an obvious choice.
Burlesque-A-Pades stars Deceiver Albert Cadabra, Tigger!, Angie Pontani, Helen Potani, The Main Attraction, Gal Friday and Pinkie Special. Albert Cadabra is funny and makes sure you are laughing the whole way through. His ability to keep you engaged as an audience is inspiring and the best part of the show, but then again I am a girl if you are a guy you might like the burlesque dancing much better as they are not why to come to the audience and give them a closer look at the art of burlesque.
Tigger! is a great performer that gets so much into character that the spit flies everywhere and do not worry the stage is far enough away that you will not get hit.
All of the burlesque dancers makes burlesque adventurous and entertaining. It is not all the classic burlesque style but it is burlesque with personalities that makes it fun for 1½ hours.
The place where the show is being held is a cute old school kinda place and you can even smell it and I must admit that I like that, I like a little bit of history. If you would like to watch a fun burlesque show and try something different, the show is every Friday at 10:00pm with dates through December.
