This show was full of nipple tassels, bare bottoms, lots of sexual innuendos and some variety acts thrown in for good measure.
My husband and I went to see Wam Bam Cabaret at the Grove Theatre in Dunstable last night (31 March 2017). The theatre is easily located, with a free car park just a short stroll away. We had great seats and were looked after very well by staff. We were served quickly upon arrival and ordered drinks for the interval.
Attending the show was a variety of people, hen parties, groups of friends and couples all ages. I knew that this was going to be a variety of acts, the show name is a giveaway ‘cabaret’ but what I didn’t know was how sexually orientated it was going to be. We were told to leave our inhibitions at home by our glamorous hostess ‘Lady Alex’ and asked to whoop, cheer and make sexual noises to welcome on the acts. The audience did oblige and there was plenty of cheering throughout. Lady Alex continued to entertain us throughout, there was lots of audience participation. If I had done my homework before I went to see the show I would of known that this was Burlesque with variety and comedy, with Burlesque taking the centre stage. These ladies were beautiful, erotic and sensual. I have to say I loved the variety acts, from the physic comedian to the acrobats on the swing, what strength and grace they showed, my personal favourite was the hula hoop performance, visual entertaining, but coming in a close 2nd was the ‘rock’ band performance, look out for this if like me you go without knowing what to expect.
I thoroughly enjoyed but if I am honest I did look forward to the variety performances, I felt there was quite a lot of burlesque dancing and stripping by the albeit very talented dancers, but having said that if you know in advance that that is what the show is about then you will have a fun filled evening.
All in all, this is a show full of glamour and glitz with some extremely talented performers.
