How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Although this was billed as a "from France, authentic burlesque review," it was basically a local production with some international performers and a French producer/star. As the stars indicate, it was OK. There was about 40 minutes of quality work and another 40 minutes that felt like filler/stretching it to make a full-length (one act) show. The emcee was horrible (reading from index cards!), but that could be forgiven if the show was really top-notch. It was fine for a local event at the cheapee Goldstar rate, but if I paid full price for the good orchestra seats, I would have been really pissed off.
