Sudbury Burlesque takes audiences back to the cabaret
Sudbury Burlesque, Northern Ontario’s premier burlesque troupe, is getting ready to celebrate love and nostalgia with their latest production. From Feb. 9-17, Sudbury Burlesque presents Va-Va-Valentine: A Burlesque cabaret at Steve’s Encore Lounge in the Sudbury Theatre Centre, 170 Shaughnessy St.
This latest production features a sizzling revue with Sudbury Burlesque’s cast of showgirls, accompanied by a live trio of local jazz musicians.
With champagne, hors-d’oeuvres, go-go dancing, sweet treats, party favours and local vendors, the event promises to tantalize and provoke from the moment the doors open to the minute patrons leave.
“We’re going all the way back to our roots with this production,” said Jess Crowe, the troupe’s artistic director. “We started over 10 years ago with smaller, more intimate productions and we’re very excited to get back to performances where we get to connect with each and every audience member.”
The soundtrack to this Valentine’s Day spectacle will have that swing that harkens to the era of jazz greats and the STC lounge will be transformed to feel just like the cabarets that gave life to those classics.
Shows start at 7:30 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. A cash bar will be available. Sudbury Burlesque shows are for audiences 19 years of age and older.
Electronic tickets are available
