Cabaret De Paris", running at Her Majesty's Theatre from July 29th-30th at 8:00pm and Matinee July 30th 2:00pm. Come experience the best Paris has to offer in this burlesque extravaganza. Produced by internationally acclaimed illusionist Michael Boyd, 'Cabaret De Paris' is a cocktail of illusion, cabaret, burlesque and comedy.
The show features former Moulin Rouge dancer Marissa Burgess, who has been gracing the stage at Gold Coasts Jupiter's Casino for the past 10 years. Her pieces bring the glamour and elegance that is Paris theatre. She brings the show to a close with a medley her favourite French songs.
Michael Bowd gives this show a bit of magic with his illusions that keep you guessing and wondering how it is even possible. He presents mind-blowing tricks involving disappearing beauties, fire tricks and reappearing again.
The show is the best of cabaret presenting burlesque themed routines like 'I'm A Good Girl' recognised for its number by Christina Aguilera in the movie Burlesque. This act was fabulous and tastefully raunchy. Burgess sings alongside dancers and of course, this is a feather routine that was beautiful to watch.
Kim Miller wows the stage with her glamour pole routine. Her dance is beautiful and full of strength and grace. This is amazing to watch and received a well-deserved round of an applause at the end.
Duban Nickol was a standout performer, his comedy routine had the audience. Never before have I seen a strip routine done during a headstand on a trampoline. This has to be seen to be believed.
This show is cabaret meets burlesque and features the crème de la crème of showgirls and can-can dancers. The dancers included Elissa Cadwell, Elorah Cooper, Alix Bruun-Hammond, Karina Bujnowicz, Brianna Anderson, Jane McPhie, Kim Hudman, Michael Stavrou, Nathan Bruce and Dylan Speedy.
Overall this was a very good show, which is highly entertaining and full of glamour. 5/5 Stars.
