Time Out says

The Hippodrome is best known for its casino and for waxed, plucked and polished men getting their kit off at Channing Tatum’s Magic Mike Live. But underground, inside its cabaret bar Lola’s, performer diversity, be it in age, shape, size, sexual orientation or gender identity, is the status quo. As part of Burlesque Idol, which runs on the last Friday of the month, aspiring burlesque performers compete for your votes to win a spot in the Burlesque Idol grand final. Tassel titans, including founder of House of Burlesque, Tempest Rose, also make up a judging panel to provide expert insight into how to remove a glove Bridgerton-style and untie a bra strap without looking like a shimmying urine infection. You’ll likely leave questioning every sweet lyric Jermaine Stewart ever serenaded you with.
