Burlesque with a difference

One week I might go with all the other oldies to a movie at the Film Society, the next it might be a burlesque show.  Then, probably, I will hardly go out at all for six months but that's beside the point.  And it's not as if there weren't a few other oldies at the burlesque show - there were, there were people of all ages amongst the mainly female audience.

And they all enjoyed the show as much as I did.

Some of you will recognize one of the dancers here.  She was great.

Others may recognize Madame Delilah D'Amore:

It looks like your ordinary burlesque show so far, huh?  (I don't know how many of you get to see them often enough to know what "ordinary" is.  Neither do I for that matter, but after seeing two such shows, I have appointed myself as an expert in such matters.)

Throw in a few amazing dancers:

a highly entertaining (if slightly risque) cleaning lady:

and it adds up to a great night out.  Thank you very much Northern Dolls for the show.  I hope it becomes an annual event.

Well done, Heather and Kirsten!!


  1. Titillating photographs; but I'm confused. Where were all the men?

  2. Wow! That was some night's entertainment!

  3. I would be one of those without enough experience to say what would be 'ordinary'...

  4. Looks like a lot of fun! Makes my legs hurt just to look at the pole dancer though! I must be getting old.... :)

  5. Ummmm, I don't understand why men don't go to a show like that?

  6. Well I've never been to such a show either. I rather think it would make my eyes water seeing ladies who can do things like that. I couldn't help admiring the ability just in the photos.


I love to know who's visiting. Leave me a sign!
