Tonight, March 16th at 8pm the doors will open for Beatles-Lesque at the Virgin Mobile Mod Club at 722 College St. Great Canadian Burlesque and friends are using the theme and music of Beatlemania to produce a sexy-fun show featuring some of Toronto's best known burlesque performers along with a live band and hosting by Canadian Wolfman and Sketchy the Clown.
Beatlemania is Back! well.... sorta. Experience the Beatles story like it never happened. From their humble start stripping in Liverpool clubs, to their wild and dirty days in Hamburg; follow the story of Peeler-mania. From their first appearance stripping on The Ed Sullivan show to their iconic rooftop bump-and-grind revue, witness John, Paul, George and Ringo like never before... Exposed!
This parody show is a merging two of our favorite things; Burlesque and The Beatles.
