After a highly successful season in 2015, Burlesque superstar and founder of the global striptease sensation The Hurly Burly Show, Miss Polly Rae (‘Best Burlesque’ London Cabaret Awards 2015) returns to London Wonderground for an extended run of her critically acclaimed raunchy revue.
In 2015 we wrote an article called 10 reasons you need to see Between the Sheets and luckily, she’s back all things sensual, sexy and saucy. Between The Sheets is a contemporary burlesque cabaret, bursting with a dynamite mix of song, dance, comedy, circus and glorious innuendo designed to titillate, tickle and tease.
This ‘poptastic’, visually stunning, hilarious and risqué romp features brand new material created especially for London Wonderground by an elite team including Director Laura Corcoran (Frisky and Mannish), Art Director Klare ‘Yaya’ Wilkinson and producer Tom Gravett of Yellow Entertainment.
On stage Between The Sheets boasts an incredible all-star cast including London Cabaret Award Winner (‘Best Burlesque’ 2014) Kitty Bang Bang, ‘La Soirée’ sensation Yammel Rodriguez, ‘Cirque Du Soleil’ wonder Hugo Desmarais and more.
Miss Polly Rae is a burlesque performer, chanteuse, compere and producer renowned for her unique style and unrivalled talent. Famed for bringing Burlesque to London’s West End in the critically acclaimed The Hurly Burly Show and the Soho Burlesque Club in London’s famous Hippodrome Casino, Rae has toured the world with her stunning act of striptease and song.
As well as being a writer, performer and one half of cult comedy cabaret duo Frisky and Mannish, Laura Corcoran is also making a name for herself as a director in the world of cabaret. Her work so far has been widely varied, from cult immersive dining experience, Gingerline, to writing on and directing Elaine Paige’s most recent concert tour, which was filmed at the Royal Albert Hall, and broadcast on BBC Radio 2. She is thrilled to continue to work closely with Miss Polly Rae on Between the Sheets.
Klare ‘Yaya’ Wilkinson has been working in the cabaret industry for the past 10 years as a stylist, hair and make-up artist and most recently as a talented art director. She has worked with Miss Polly Rae on The Hurly Burly Show, Boom and Bang at the Roundhouse, festivals including Lounge on The Farm and all three seasons of Between The Sheets.
An exciting new addition to the ‘Between the Sheets’ team this year is producer Tom Gravett of Yellow Entertainment. Fresh from his sell-out season of acclaimed show ‘Cabaret des Distractions’, he will be bringing his considerable energy and experience to the proceedings to deliver the best season yet.
