Board Game Burlesque Adaptation
In a show such as Sweet Tooth Events produces with such a diverse and passionate calibration of talent among the entertainers, the best is always on stage in one portrayal of sensuality or another. In this steamy saga of the’Clue’ board game, the narrator and script fuelled the heated orgasmic suspicion around all of the characters and spurred sassy suspense toward evil miracle and lust quite well.
The dinner guests were of course the’colourful’ Clue board game personas, but the snooty, uppity class demeanours were converged with the cheeky, provocative flirtatious of the burlesque artists. They brought the suspects to life in a really real, albeit censored manner, and hid the gilded murder weapons in areas closer to some other family jewels.
Between each act the discreet’Shylock’ detective would step out of the shadows to inspect the chalk outline on the floor while calmly puffing away on her pipe. She would consider the scene and take notes on the quirky traits of each one the dinner guests, as well as the maid servants so as to show the predominant’who’ flavour in this hot’whodunit’.
I’ve got a notion on some of the questions Detective Shylock might ask herself in this deadly male travesty.
Was Mr Green’s green beard real or was it green cherry and does his rug match those drapes?
Why did Mrs White smile so sweetly when she poured tea for the dinner guests when she secretly wanted to strangle them all?
What does Professor Plum really teach and does she tutor her students about how to commit the perfect scandalous murder?
Why wasn’t Miss Peacock more discreet with the knife she hid in her garter which was clearly protruding a blade stained with blood red rhinestones.
What about the humble serving girl who had been quietly dusting a lampshade and then leapt on the dance floor with such verve that her gyrations knocked the baggy pants off old Colonel Mustard? And, was that a gun in his thong or was he just glad to see her?
Did she even notice when Mr Boddy sneaked in and free the guests of well-hidden proof in his enchanting mingling session?
Many unanswered questions abounded amid the throngs of thongs and pasties, but in the long run the guilty burlesquer was captured and sentenced to perform in the finale.
As always, the synergy within this group of artists is one that amuses the audience with its intoxicating liveliness and gaiety in this way that it’s no wonder you wake up still feeling sated on your sense of pleasure and enjoyment – it’s fun that has staying power!
I quite enjoy the awesome symbiosis between burlesque performers and their audience in that the more you goad them on the more spirited the operation for a greater exchange of delight.
Like when you are sitting in the front row where you can woot and wahoo in a the suave siren swivelling across the point and he will intentionally oblige you with a sexy glance and then tease the buttons on his sequenced shirt till it falls to the floor only to show his manly rhinestone-studded pecs. Ooh la la!
Clue, the Burlesque Play is without a doubt one of my favorite Sweet Tooth Event productions. I was introduced to theatre burlesque only by chance in 2013 when one of the performers just happened to be at a coffee shop while I was waiting for my buddy to get of work. Since my very first show I was enamoured by the frankness and friskiness of the actors in their carefree attitude both on and off stage.
The body appreciation variable was a bonus to the hours of continuous laughter I have busted a gut with at every one of their shows as they can be outrageously hilarious. I have appreciated every new addition to this amazing troop of exceptionally talented and creative people over the years and they never cease to entertain my socks off.
