From the crew that brought you Metropolis 2040, From Dusk ‘Til Dawn and Gorelesque, comes Melbourne’s next BIG burlesque event, THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEWOMEN.
This cinematic time warp plunges its audience into the era of Golden Age Hollywood, a world where colourful chorus girls, top ‘n tailed dandies, vaudevillian comics and devilishly handsome leading gents reigned supreme. A time where film moguls and starlets, bent on fame and fortune, bathed in champagne and the lime light. A time where men were men, women could be men… and everything in-between.
Featuring live big band music and the best in circus and burlesque from around Australia, THE LEAGUE promises to be the black-tie event of the year. A show for the dandies, the divas, seductresses, swindlers, crooners and cross-dressers.
Burlesque isn’t dead. It’s sitting in the backroom, with a glass of scotch and a cigar, contemplating the glorious future.
FRIDAY 21st JULY
@ THE NORTHCOTE THEATRE (REGAL BALLROOM)
