The London Folies is 21st century variety and burlesque, featuring fabulous new songs, gorgeous girls in exotic costumes, hilarious comedy and sheer spectacle. It’s a spectacular summer variety show and a celebration of London’s melting pot of culture and diversity.
Miss Polly Rae – “the Queen of Leicester Square” – is the UK’s rising star of burlesque (“Best Troupe” Ministry of Burlesque Awards); she smoulders in a delicious blend of cabaret, variety and traditional and ‘neo’ burlesque.
Ivy Paige – “the Scarlet Temptress” – is one of the most sought-after cabaret artists in the UK. She has a unique voice fused with bawdy burlesque and stand-up comedy.
Irish hoofer James Devine clocks in at an astounding 38 taps per second. Now after sold out, record-breaking seasons on Broadway and at the Edinburgh Festival, this is his first performance in London. Possessing a fast and vigorous percussive dance style, his signature tap has been likened to “manic typewriters,” “talking drums” and a “tap tornado”.
