Taboo Revue Burlesque Variety Show
Screaming Chicken Theatrical Society presents Vancouver's biggest and longest running showcase of singing, dancing, variety, comedy and striptease acts. The show is funny, sexy and empowering and is a great time for everyone.
The Revue is known for its large production numbers and stages more group numbers than any other Vancouver show. One of these numbers was recently performed in Las Vegas at the Burlesque Hall of Fame Pageant with the Chickens competing for the 2010 Best Group title.
With more than twenty performers in every show you also get the city's widest range of talents. The revue features some of the city's most experienced entertainers as well as some of the newest performing in styles that range from classical to silly.
"Minute for minute, this is a funnier production than SNL or Mad-TV, with a high-caliber of choreography, costume design, and writing." Muhammad Amir The Peak (http://www.the-peak.ca/article/6390)
"The atmosphere was on fire as always, with foot stomping, catcalling, and taunts to "take it off" reaching incredible venue-shaking volumes during the vibrant mix of entertaining songs, comedy, and dirty dance." Leanne Perry Beyond Robson (http://www.beyondrobson.com/arts/2010/03/taboo_revue_is_a_campy_vampy_gem/)
Doors open at 8pm with shows starting at 9pm. Seating is by general admission so arrive early for the best spots. A licensed bar is provided by the Wise Club throughout the shows and the downstairs lounge is open for drinks before and after the show (often a great place to meet cast and crew). The venue comfortably seats 200 with fantastic sightlines to the large stage so you won't miss one bit of the action. Located just off of Commercial Drive near the corner of Victoria Drive and Adanac Street the Wise is near both the Commercial and Hastings bus routes with ample street parking in the neighborhood.
All proceeds from the Taboo Revue go to the not-for-profit Screaming Chicken Theatrical Society and are used to support, develop and present Burlesque in Vancouver.
Our fans tend to be really fun people and it's not unusual to see them adorned in anything from evening gowns to nearly nothing at all. We definitely encourage dressing up to be part of the fun - it doesn't matter if it's formal wear, costume, vintage, burlesque or anything else your creative mind can conceive.
MM&ON's Friday Spectacular is a great place for birthdays, staggettes or just a ladies' night out. Group discounts and reserved seating for parties of eight or more. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info or to make arrangements.
