The Burlesque Hour: The Glory Box
Cocktail swigging, red hanky stripping, and a fairylit staircase down to discovery.
fortyfivedownstairs is one of the best performance venues in the city, and with a name like that, it's easy to find. It's hosted hundreds of exhibitions, music recitals, theatre performances and other exquisite events since 2002 and now the art of seduction is coming to this versatile and grungy space with The Burlesque Hour: The Glory Box. Oh my. Hold onto your knickers because Glory Box features jaw-dropping acts by Moira Finucane, Yumi Umiumare, Holly Durant and Ursula Martinez, the latter of whom performed at Salman Rushdie's stag night. Paul Capsis, Pamela Rabe and Rhonda Burchmore will also make appearances on select nights only.
Within the unpainted brick walls of fortyfivedownstairs, a seductive spectacle will sweetly unfold. Produced by Finucane & Smith, the multi-award winning Australian company, Glory Box is going to present paradise like Pandora never knew it.
