Ladies Of Burlesque Presents: Gilda With Live Performance By Dolly Berlin! says
“If I’d been a ranch, they would've named me The Bar Nothing.”

--Rita Hayworth in Gilda

Showgirls, sirens and chorines take over The Royal’s stage and screen with the début of our new series LADIES of BURLESQUE! Pairing classic films with enticing live performances from the very best of Toronto’s bustling burlesque scene, LADIES of BURLESQUE celebrates the artistry of the form and the sultry vixens of the silver screen that inspire it.

The series kicks off with a tribute to the ultimate femme fatale, the fiery redheaded Rita Hayworth, who, as the title character in Gilda, is too hot to handle (even in black and white). In her infamous rendition of “Put the Blame on Mame,” Hayworth provided one of the sexiest strip teases ever captured on film. With the simple removal of a single glove, the bombshell solidified her status as the ultimate post-war sex symbol.

One of the most celebrated of film noirs, Gilda is set in an illicit Argentine casino, where Gilda seeks revenge on the men who attempt to contain her by utilizing an arsenal of womanly weapons. Caught between a jealous, diabolical husband (George Macready) and his newly hired thug (who happens to be her former lover) played by Glenn Ford, Gilda acts anything but “decent.”

Like Gilda says, she’s not very good with zippers…unless she has some help, so come out and be there for the inauguration of our newest series. We guarantee that LADIES of BURLESQUE with and DOLLY BERLIN taking the stage, will have you panting and palpitating in your seat!
