Dixey – Where Gentlemen Are Always Immaculately Undressed (Bound & Gagged Comedy by arrangement with Beyond The Cabaret)

By | Published on Tuesday 12 August 2014

Be whisked away to a magical land of fable where, unlike Disney, a lot of people are pretty much naked. Mostly funny, occasionally poignant and always raunchy, ‘Dixey’ manages to pack a lot in: acrobatics, drag acts, pole dancing, even unicorns. The stand out here is Tigger! the “godfather of boylesque”, who heads up the proceedings with a cuttingly camp charm that is both endearing and humorous. The production may not be as polished as others of its ilk, but the performers bring an impressive physicality to the stage. and as a show aiming for pure entertainment it certainly does the trick. Sexy and silly, ‘Dixey’ is a wonderfully beautiful and strange demonstration of burlesque.

Assembly Roxy, until 24 Aug.
