Le Scandal is a burlesque extravaganza packed full of theatrical glamour, vaudeville humour and burlesque tease - an evening of pure wonderment from New York’s top variety performers backed by live music from Brighton’s very own house band – The Gents!
Described by the New York Press as ‘The Rock Star of the NY Burlesque Scene’ the cast of Le Scandal are the crème-de-la-crème of NYC's variety performers who are known for performing their skillful and highly professional routines at exclusive parties throughout the City and regular evenings at the illusive underground haunt ‘The Box,’ New York’s hottest celebrity hang out, where the likes of P-Diddy, Usher, Moby, Janet Jackson, Sting, Alicia Keys and Lance Armstrong can been seen lapping up the entertainment.
Le Scandal is in its 8th year at The Cutting Room in New York City owned by 'Sex and the City' actor Chris Noth. Host, producer and performer Bonnie Dunn is known on the New York variety circuit as 'The Godmother of Burlesque'. Her weekly show is a unique and sophisticated blend of neo-burlesque and vaudeville - from Eric Walton, the theatrical and enigmatic magician & escapologist, to Ruby Valentine a classical Burlesque performer who elegantly teases herself into the room from the 1930s, to Marcus Monroe the powerful and extreme juggler and inventor of the ‘Knorch’, to Mantryx the provocative and risqué trio of aerialists who glide through the air using silks & chains, to Trixie Little and the Evil Hate Monkey the comedy burlesque duo who’s acrobatic skit of ‘Total Eclipse of the Heart’ will leave you roaring with laughter and screaming for more!
Le Scandal will run for 14 nights at UDDERBELLY @ Udderbelly’s Pasture, Old Steine Brighton BN1 1NH from 5th – 18th May at 10:30pm with the exception of Saturday 17th which will be a toned-down family matinee show starting at 2:45pm.
