Bootsy’s Bodacious Burlesque: A Hit at the Metropolitan Room

Bootsy’s Bodacious Burlesque, which debuted at the acclaimed Metropolitan Room on Thursday May 4th, is a classy, fun, exciting, and innovative spin on Burlesque. It’s modern with a side of old-school charm, which sets it apart from many of the Burlesque shows featured throughout Manhattan.

Renowned Burlesque MC, Bastard Keith did a fabulous job hosting. He’s a young, saucy, Steven Colbert type with a great voice and impeccable comedic timing. He kept the audience on their toes throughout the evening. His throwback-esq renditions of “Baby’s Got Back” and “Gin and Juice” were particular crowd pleasers.

The show also featured a number of wildly sensational acts performed by Kitten Cherrie Sprite, Michael Momentum, Amber Ray, Princess Bytch, Ivy Absinthe, and Bootsy Sterling. Each performer brought their own unique style and flare to the stage. Cherrie Sprite set the mood with her fabulous go-go dancing. Momentum, who has performed at the White House, wowed the audience with his juggling striptease act. While Amber Ray was dazzling in “Lotus.” Princess Bytch dropped some knowledge on us all. And Ivy Absinthe brought some classic charm and grace to the stage. Bootsy Sterling created and shared four different personas with the audience ranging from private eye detective to Frau Bootsy, the barmaid at a German Bierhaus. Her dance and theater training was quite apparent. Sterling, an international burlesque performer who recently relocated to New York, did a bang up job producing the show as well.  Follow her on Facebook at Bootsy Sterling Burlesque.

The stage was brilliantly lit by JP Perreaux, who also provided sound for the evening. The show ran approximately 90 minutes. Perhaps a tad long for the venue, which usually accommodates 60 minute cabaret shows. However, there was never a dip in energy and the audience was entertained throughout the evening. The acts moved seamlessly together. This was a very enjoyable show and I hope to see more of its kind at the Metropolitan Room.
