Real Woman At Fringe World 2017 says
Burlesque Queen Becky Lou is often told by audience members how refreshing and empowering it is to see a ‘real woman’ dance provocatively on stage. Becky Lou nods politely through three sets of false eyelashes, her weave wobbling on top of her dyed, sprayed and heat curled hair.

In her debut solo show, Shake, Becky Lou combined intensely personal storytelling with the unique, comedic burlesque she’d built a career on to explore the reasons why, despite being comfortable as a scantily-clad sexy dancer, she was afraid to speak in public. Both an experiment in dissecting neo-burlesque itself and a revelation of the person behind the performer, Becky Lou demonstrated her skill as a storyteller, gaining critical acclaim and sell-out crowds over six seasons.

Having unleashed her voice, she returns with her second solo offering, Real Woman, again delving into her own history. From her first impressions of what it meant to be a ‘Real Woman’, courtesy of Dolly Doctor and chardonnay swilling suburban ladies to navigating life choices as a woman in her mid-30s, Becky adds her honest and evocative stories to hilarious neo-burlesque.
