401 Swanston St
“On the last Sunday of every month, Red Door brings you the finest in burlesque, vaudeville and circus at the elegant Order of Melbourne. An evening at Red Door is like taking a trip back to the golden age of burlesque, with dazzling performances from Hi Ball Burlesque, seductive tunes from DJ Emma Peel, saucy pinup girls, and death-defying aerial acts performing right above your table.”
On the last Sunday of August, I took a trip to the Order of Melbourne to visit Red Door Burlesque… and I was not disappointed. Be warned people, if you want a seat right up close to the action, you need to get there early!
Starring the lovely ladies from Hi Ball Burlesque, Lil Thelma Thunderbird as the sparkly MC and (a new experience for me) Boylesque! Oh how I love boylesque! The aerial acts will amaze you, literally above your head as you sip on your cocktail. This is one burlesque show you should not miss.
To get a taste of Red Door Burlesque – head to The Order of Melbourne on September 27th, doors open at 6pm.
Here are some offerings from me – I was waiting for my brand new Sigma 24-70mm f2.8 which I was meant to get on Friday 😦 So unfortunately couldnt get as wide shots as I would have liked, but get to save them up for next time 😛
