Review: The Brickhouse welcomes back risque Americans Sinner Saint Burlesque
Raunchy Seattle entertainers Sinner Saint Burlesque are back in the East End with a whole new repertoire of playful skits and inventive outfits.
After a successful run at cabaret club the Brickhouse last year, the American dolls have signed up for another month-long showing and have some new tricks up their lacy sleeves.
On the night What’s On headed down they were joined by multi-tasking compere Jayde Adams who ended up stealing the show with extraordinary interludes that began with obvious gags and ended with a wonderful through-the-ages parody of popular dance crazes and a pretty unexpected rendition of operatic tear-jerker Time To Say Goodbye.
As for the acts, this time we were treated to a number of ensemble performances which included the can-can and a various synchronised routines.
The Sinner Saint Burlesque girls are a distinctive bunch and all the more entertaining for it.
