The Hurly Burly Girlys are hot....
I don't know where to start with this - the show was absolutely amazing!
I can't give away too much about the acts themselves but the whole thing was a masterpiece - funny, sexy, intelligent and cheeky. And the girls are talented and athletic, with bodies to die for, but two in particular stood out for me (apart from Polly Rae herself.)
Anything that pays homage to the French Revolution with Lady gaga, Marilyn Monroe and a glittery guillotine is alright by me! And big band versions of some favourite 80's tracks and mashed up medleys gave the whole performance a Baz Luhrmann feel.
During the audience participation, I think the scared bloke they dragged on stage was relieved to see them move the guillotine first, but the terror returned when he saw the horses saddle....!
Somehow the performances managed to amalgamate various epochs in history, all genres of music and classic tease, as well as modern rock-inspired naughtiness, all seamlessly from start to finish.
Unfortunately the show ends tomorrow, but I highly recommend you keep your eye out if it returns to another theatre and go and see it!
PS - sometimes with things like this they let you in free if you dress the part, right? But don't turn up wearing only nipple pasties and a vajazzle.
They, er...they don't let you do that I've realised..... ;-)
Until next time...
