THE world's original touring burlesque spectacular is about to hit the Midlands.

An Evening of Burlesque is set to take place from 8pm on Friday, September 12 at the Alexandra Theatre, in Station Street, Birmingham.

Officially Britain's biggest burlesque extravaganza – a quarter of a million people have now seen this show – An Evening of Burlesque features corsets, killer heels and stockings aplenty.

Show producer Michael Taylor said: "It is a spectacle that sparkles from its elaborately-decorated headdresses to its immaculately varnished toes.

"It might not come as a complete surprise that audiences are predominantly female.

"Nothing is lost in translation, An Evening of Burlesque's content – sparkling glamour, physical humour and a dynamic score – are appreciated in any language.

"The show combines musical and theatrical parody, cutting-edge variety, magic, comedy and dance with the art of striptease. At every venue, the fairer sex make up the majority of our audiences.

"And the ladies just love dressing for the occasion.

"So much so, the production now offers a "burlesque-tastic" surprise prize for the best-dressed member of the audience on the night.

"The prize will be awarded by the show's production manager, their decision being final.

"The show is an opportunity to forget about all your troubles for an evening and enjoy the thrills and spills of modern-day burlesque.

"Theatregoers completely immerse themselves in the evening's entertainment."

Michael says, as performers look out from the stage, the auditorium is aglitter with the most dazzling outfits.

"As a consequence, the atmosphere at theatres is absolutely electric," he said

"We would like to reward the most glamorously-dressed person with a prize they'll treasure forever."

He said that he is proud to be bringing variety back to the theatre.

Tickets cost £24.50 and £26.50 and are available by visiting atgtickets.com/Birmingham easytheatres.com

The show is for people over the age of 18 only.
