The smash-hit modern cabaret burlesque experience, An Evening with Miss Polly Rae is a sublime and sensuous cocktail of Burlesque, Cabaret, Pop and Comedy - full of cheeky, playful themes and incredible musical arrangements.
Ultimate mistresses of the burlesque, Miss Polly Rae and her Hurly Burly Girlys have set a new standard in performance with a spectacular and cleverly sensuous show. Miss Polly Rae is a stand-out in the burlesque arena as she sings live during her performances. Her breathy, sexually charged delivery on revamped favourites by the likes of Madonna, the Pet Shop Boys, Rhianna and Michael Jackson, will be matched by sumptuous, delicately choreographed routines, featuring her six beautiful Girlys all singing live - an exceptional marriage of vocal talent and burlesque art.
Created by burlesque artiste supreme, Miss Polly Rae, Miss Polly Rae and the Hurly Burly Girlys started life on the cabaret circuit of London’s glittering West End and salubrious Soho - the long-time home of London’s cabaret scene. The Girlys were regular fixtures at the infamous Soho Revue Bar (formally Raymond Revue Bar). So popular was the troupe and its inimitable brand of burlesque comedy and striptease that this engagement became a residency.
In 2007, the Hurly Burly Girlys were awarded Best Troupe at the Ministry Of Burlesque Awards leading to many TV and public appearances. Following this the show reached staggering new heights with the introduction of a world class creative team brought together by Director William Baker who is most widely known for his creative work with Kylie Minogue and many others.
The Hurly Burly Show show opened at the Leicester Square Theatre and was met with more excellent acclaim. In a London first, the show played a further 8 weeks at the highly lauded Garrick Theatre in the West End and again wowed audiences and critics alike.
An Evening with Miss Polly Rae & the Hurly Burly Girlys has been deftly crafted for this extra special, intimate presentation at Sydney's Factory Theatre and is an all singing, all dancing burlesque inspired revue with a contemporary twist, magically fusing the traditions of burlesque and bawdy cabaret with modern day fashion, music and popular culture. With spectacular costumes, the beautiful Miss Polly Rae and the Hurly Burly Girlys elegantly focuses on the tease and takes audiences on a unique, provocative journey full of wit and joie de vivre.
