This is a cross between an erotic sleazy strip show and a 'Madonna' concert, and I have to admit I liked it. The show is loud, alive, silly and is not to be taken too seriously.

There has been a lot of criticism of the show for being sordid and dull but it is far from this. Don't get me wrong, it's not a show to take your granny to or anybody who is a little squeamish, you have to be open minded. It is a adult musical with full frontal nudity which is handled very well. They kept the light low and blown some smoke on the stage and used various garments to keep covering themselves up.

The plot was minimal but that's all it had to be and the choreography and staging by Bunty Matthias and Annabel Haydn fitted well with the show, I liked quite a lot of the dance routines.

The best part of the show for me is the music by Michael Lewis and Peter Rafelson. It sounded a lot like Madonna music, so if you do not like Madonna or similar type of music stay well away. I think all the bad publicity for it's nudity is masking just how well polished this production is.
