Shakespeare’s Sirens: A Burlesque Revue

 

Review


The Fringe is getting frisky! But it’s sexy, not smutty, and there’s so much more to the show than bare bosoms. The audience is treated to a sassy Queen Elizabeth (Morgan Smith) who accuses Shakespeare (CJ Rowein) of being a bigoted bard for not writing any independent female characters. In his defence, he points out some strong-willed women who then bump and grind to the beat of contemporary hits. The paradox between music and character is delicious, and the whooping from the audience at every undone button adds to the atmosphere. From Hamlet to Macbeth, Shakespeare’s misogyny is parodied in dance and performed by ladies who love both their bodies and their art. By Jacquelin Gregoire
