Burlesque show in Darwin - 27th June
by: Anonymous

Was very disappointed with the Burlesque show in Darwin on 27th June.

Expected good entertainment but was subjected to act after act of women doing nothing other than shimmying around discarding items of clothing.

Lift your game, guys! No event could be distinguished from each other. Not a single male member to provide any gender balance. There are much better ways to hold the audience's attention for 2+ hours. Cobble together a story line with some comedic elements if you must. Have some performances with more than one lone performer on stage.

Very repetitive with no surprises. Worst of all was the host who screamed the place down with a lengthy 20 minute introduction. Carried on with a silly accent and a 5 minute introduction per performer. Boring! Wish I'd given it a miss.
