Factory Theatre to watch The Ruby Revues 5th Birthday. This was the last chance to catch the Ruby Revue as the Ruby Revue is taking a break from its residency at The Arthouse Hotel to focus on regional and international shows.
The night was compared by Miss Burlesque Australia 2010 Rita Fontaine and featured a host of burlesque talent. Some of the best of the night were the comical songs from Kitty Van Horne aka Tara Queen of the Nile, Holly JaDoll's naughty nun routine, Imogen Kelly's Claire de Lune hoop dress routine which I believe was a tribute to Sally Rand's bubble routine was simply stunning and left the audience silence by its beauty. Imogen's second act the caterpillar to butterfly act was also amazing. Jennifer Kovac's fabulous aerial silks routine left the audience awestruck. A mention also goes to Danica Lee's super sultry striptease.
Overall the event was a fantastic night of some of the best burlesque talent in the country. I for one will certainly miss The Ruby Revue and I hope it comes back to Sydney soon. In the meantime some shots from the night can be seen on the Australian Burlesque Calendar page on Facebook here
