Last weekend I jetted down for a mini-break in Wellington. While there I went along to Carousel Cabaret, a bi-monthly burlesque show produced by the lovely Venus Starr. The venue, a short walk away from my hotel, was the San Francisco Bath House, on Cuba Street.
I was totally impressed by the quality of the performers that Venus had brought in. Siren Sweetsong opened both the first and the second half of the show, with two amazing acts, and an INCREDIBLE voice.
Lilly Loca had been flown down from Auckland, performing her tribute to great burlesque legends, and I thought she was fabulous. There were also performances from Tiger Moon, Bon Bon Rocher, MisRed and Little Miss Broadway.
Venus put together a class act, and I think she should be very proud of herself. Hopefully some of the Allstars can make it down for the next one, it’s definitely a show worth seeing, with a perfomer line-up that changes every time.
