I have decided that burlesque is the answer to the question 'why should drag queens have all the fun?'!  It's fun and sexy and all about girl power...which incidentally makes it the perfect hens night (and there was at least one bride-to-be in the mostly female audience).  

The show was titled 'Our Favourite Things' and featured glitter, eyelashes, fabulous shoes, wigs, costumes, pasties, tassels, seamed stockings, feather boas...and some amazing divas with names like Miss Ooh La La Paree, Lady La Rouge, Miss Ruby Spice, Fiasco Belle and Azure D'Murre...all under the expert guidance of Mother Spectacular Miss Bettsy Rose Lee.

The preparations...

(pushing the limits of my poor camera photogrpahing in the dark)

...then upstairs to the stage...

final moments before going on...

More from backstage...

Miss Bettsy Rose Lee and the fan dance... (had to be in colour!)

and Miss Fiasco Belle posing up a storm for me!

and the final number (shot from the back of the stage)...

After it was all over the stage was littered with glitter and feathers and I thought that was a pretty good summary...there may also have been some shed inhibitions in the shadows  :-)
