I was given two complimentary tickets to attend and enjoy an evening watching award winning Burlesque performers on the Lady Cutler Showboat in Docklands.
I couldn’t have chosen a better night to go along and enjoy some spectacular burlesque. The evening was warm and I was excited to be on a boat in the water experiencing what it’s like seeing Docklands and the city from a different angle. The cityscape is breathtaking at night and was made even more enjoyable when you combine it with sensual and classy burlesque dancers each performing their own unique show on a show boat with delicious canapés and finger food served non-stop throughout the night.
A little bit about Lady Cutler
Launched in 2011, Lady Cutler’s Showboat Burlesque Show is the longest running burlesque show in Melbourne.
I don’t think people realise just how talented the burlesque dancers were so I’m highlighting my two favourite performers from the night below:
After spending some time mingling amongst ourselves on the boat, we headed upstairs for the 45-minute show. A very energetic and lively master of ceremonies bounced her way onto the small stage. Let me tell you, this lady is a pocket rocket and was the perfect character to start the show. Liz is not only a natural born comedian, she is also an actor, writer and director and over the last 15 years, she has been heavily involved in her very own theatre company which tours nationally and internationally.
One of my favourite performers on the night, her ambience was very captivating and sensual. She channels a very sexy 1930s era. In 2014, she won the title of Miss Burlesque Victoria and thrilled the country by taking out the coveted title of Miss Burlesque Australia. She has been named one of Australia’s Top 10 Burlesque Artists in 21st Century Magazine.
If you want to enjoy a night out with the girls or do something a bit different to celebrate any special occasion, you can book a night out on Lady Cutler. Tickets include a glass of bubbly on arrival as well as canapes served throughout the cruise. I’ve listed their menu for those who want to check out what will be served on the night.
