I once wrote a brief history of burlesque in Vancouver even though the form is still alive and kicking in this town. Such is evident in the opening of Shine: A Burlesque Musical at the Waterfront theatre on Granville Island.
SHINE: A Burlesque Musical is a tassel-twirling original musical about an infamous burlesque theatre and the family of talented misfits who try to save it from demolition… or worse, respectability
Written and created by Cass King, John Woods and Sam Dulmage. Directed by Jen Cressey. Choreography by Lauren Allen (AKA April O’Peel) and Rebecca Franklin (aka Melody Mangler). The show is 18+ and will be running from August 12th until August 22nd.
