Attending A Peepshow
Went out with the Hennessy boys (Dad and brothers) last night. Had a great dinner at Strip House before going to see something called the Peepshow. Tremendous show but I figured that, if anything, people walk in with no real idea what to expect other than Holly Madison. So, why not take a moment and share it with you.
The show is a mix of burlesque, musical and Cirque Du Soleil. Take a young overworked woman that comes home to her dog after a long day. Bring her into the world of nursery rhymes in a mix of escapism but also trying to find herself. Great music, a beautiful cast, sensual moments with many laughs, Peepshow is not what you think from the title. (Instead think Little Bo Peep mixed with ummm... a peepshow.) One of the major parts that you walk away astounded by is a spoiler that I can't reveal but you have to see to believe.
Overall, Peepshow is better than I expected. Visually entertaining and something for everyone. Ok, not everyone. Actually, I was amazed at how many young women were dressed to the nines there attending (as if it was a girls night out.) There is a lot of toplessness and sexual connotations made but if you have no problem with that (and are old enough) go check it out.
