Welcome, one and all, to Burlesque! A world of bumps, grinds, teases, corsets, lash extensions, pouts, stage lighting and smoke awaits you! Nothing is what it seems here and everyone has a gimmick. Some showing a little more, other’s showing a little less, with fans, umbrellas, wings, balloons, glitter and other accessories adding to the erotic mystique that make up Burlesque!
Pin-up glamour, steampunk, erotic gothic and rockabilly fashion all sit comfortably together in The Grind, the city’s best known burlesque venue. The troupe are all dressed up and ready to go!
Unfortunately for everyone, this evening’s entertainment has had to be cancelled. Ivor Merkin, the owner of The Grind, has been found dead in the girl’s dressing room amidst all the feathers, pasties, tit tape and fans. With the backstage area only accessible to the dancers, bar staff and other troupe members, someone here clearly had more than teasing on their mind when they arrived this afternoon. The question is… who?
