Miss Polly Rae and the Hurly Burly Girls

Last night the Hubby and I went to An Evening with Miss Polly Rae and the Hurly Burly Girls at the Factory Theatre in Marrickville. For the first time the stars of the Hurly Burly Burlesque have come downunder and are bringing the unique brand of bawdy burlesque.

The first half features mother superior Polly Rae and her naughty nuns including the fire eating Miss Kitty Bang Bang, balloon popping goody two shoes Katie Ella and many other fabulous acts from the Hurly Burly girls set to a whole host of modern songs with a burlesque twist. The first half ends with a bawdy number by Polly which has the audience up out of their seats and learning what burlesque is really about!

And the second half is equally as fabulous with some fantastically hilarious numbers including lets get physical and a fab flash dance inspired number by Miss Sarah-Lou. There were also two fabulous performances by token boylesque performer the Amazing Ari who performed on the lyra and silks.

Overall the night was a fabulously fun show that brings a great new twist to classic burlesque. This review does not do the show justice so catch it for yourself. It is on at the Factory Theatre for the next two nights. Tickets are available here.

And for now here is a sneak peak of the show:
