Hosting the upcoming Boylesque show on Saturday has been a fascinating experience. It’s been somewhat of a departure from the usual 10-act vaudeville shows that we usually run at Speakeasy HQ and in that change of pace we’ve discovered a lot of amazing new things!
We weren’t sure who we would be marketing the night too. We didn’t know if we would be pitching the whole concept to a female or male audience. Clearly a huge hit amongst the gay community, Boylesque is also flamboyantly brilliant when done well and could be an art that appeals to any gender. But interestingly, when tickets went on sale for the show on Monday three of our five VIP tables, and more than half of the pre-sale tickets we’ve sold so far we’re sold to females.
The other interesting aspect of the Legends of Boylesque show is that I’ve have six emails from the general public asking just ‘exactly what is Boylesque?’ So, the opportunity is out there – the show will be presented on Saturday by one of Australia’s biggest names in Burlesque, Madam Natalia (mamma) and the line-up of boys will be spectacular. So get on it, get your tickets before they run out entirely, and see what boylesque is at it’s finest this Saturday night!!!
I’ll also have three of the yummiest signature Speakeasy HQ drinks at the bar to further delight your senses!!
