Thinking about spicing this up for Valentine’s this year? Are you looking for a way to go beyond the trite chocolates and roses? Do you simply want to forget all about this consumerist holiday and so something fun? Regardless of your persuasion we got you covered thanks to Love Stinks, the latest Glam Gam Productions show to grace the stage in Montreal.
To be hosted at the legendary Cafe Cleopatre, one of the few remnants of the city’s original seedy underbelly, this spectacle promises to be an outstanding event for the lovers of variety shows and burlesque-style performances. There will be circus performances, dramatic and comedic pieces, striptease and lots of camp, so be prepared for a bawdy night of fun, daring and sexy.
Under the theme of loving yourself no matter what, the performers will invite the audience to join them in not taking themselves too seriously, as they delight under the cozy atmosphere of Cafe Cleopatre. Sandy Bridges, one of Montreal’s up-and-coming drag performers will play the role of mistress of ceremonies, while the musical talent will be provided by the sultry songstress Gigi French. Once the performers are done strutting their stuff, a hot and steamy dance party will take place, presided by DJ Like the Wolf.
Doesn’t matter if you’re a lovebird, star-crossed lover or single-and ready to mingle, you’ll definitely find something right up your alley in this variety show. Now that you know what to do this Saturday, remember to bundle up as you make your way to the Quartier des Spectacles. Be ready to check the cold weather together with your coat at the entrance and feel the voluptuous warmth of Love Stinks.
