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.
