TUDOR QUEENS: A BURLESQUE
Trapped together in purgatory, the six queens of the house of Tudor are forced to retell their story over and over. As they strip away their royal robes, they strip fact from fiction and slowly piece together their collective existence as wives to the one of the most famous and bloody kings in England’s history.
"This show hooks you with sex appeal, but then surprises with real, raw emotion, dramatic tension and first-class acting chops... Now that's burlesque."
