The Hurly Burly Show

Even after a couple of mellowing glasses of wine consumed over a pre-show meal, my male companion was (like a completely sober me) distinctly unimpressed by this repetitive and, for the most part, tediously unimaginative show.

Billed as a contemporary burlesque review, this bump and grind offering was as sexy as a cold shower, the Hurly Burly Girlys often seeming uncomfortable when called on to interact with a member of the same sex.

The first half is dominated by bland if serviceable American crooner Spencer Day and a lot of wiggling by the scantily clad Girlys, but there’s little variety or fluidity as the minimal layers are removed to reveal the almost (but not totally) bare flesh beneath.

Even fire-eating Kitty Bang Bang’s attempt to add a bit of excitement fell flat as the flame on one of her strategically placed nipple tassels extinguished itself before a single swing.

Things looked up marginally with the appearance of Miss Polly Rae, a sweet-voiced songstress with a taste in elaborate costumes who dresses up as a naughty nun pleasuring herself on a crucifix and Marie Antoinette on the way to the guillotine.

But this is a very thin show, lacking in real sauce or sensuality and (despite input from Kylie collaborator William Baker) only a half-cocked celebration of the female form.
