Here’s a NSFW gallery of photos from Les Coquettes cabaret and burlesque show, which now includes a three-course meal.
On Sunday night—at a building that was once a Baptist church, no less—Les Coquettes cabaret and burlesque show shimmied its sequinned tassels to the delight of 100 guests at College Street’s Revival Bar.
Going strong for nine years now, the show recently added a dinner element ($85 for a show and three-course meal) to the evening, which was prepared by chef Christopher Woods (who pulled double duty singing “Happy Birthday” to two tables of revelers). Though they do celebrate sleaze and sex (the complimentary shots of Jager suggest the show is clearly not for kids), the show is more John Waters-approved camp than straight-up raunch, with Prohibition-themed song-and-dance (and strip) numbers filled with double-entendres. And yes, you will see guy-butt, so there’s something for everyone.
Among the highlights: the rowdy dude at the birthday table beside us being called up onstage by MC La Minouche (a.k.a. Les Coquettes’ co-founder Catherine Skinner) to perform a strip tease with a clown. In front of his girlfriend. And the 10 people he came with. Altogether, the evening was hilarious, but for the hard-to-shock cast of Les Coquettes, it was probably just another Sunday night.
Below, an obviously NSFW gallery of the evening’s festivities.
