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.

The storytelling striptease Queen returns to Adelaide Fringe with her second solo offering. From Dolly Doctor and first kisses to navigating beauty, fertility and life choices as a woman in her mid-30s, Becky adds her honest and evocative stories to hilarious neo-burlesque, asking 'What is a real woman?' and 'How real do you want me to be?'

"If Dita Von Teese and Zooey Deschanel had a child, that resulting human would be something like the incredibly talented Becky Lou." ★★★★★ Theatre Guide

 

"Becky Lou evokes Golden Age Hollywood in her costumes, music and sense of humour. She is a charming goofball with a clown-like range of facial expressions reminiscent of Lucille Ball." ★★★★★ DirtandCandy.com

Becky Lou has been described as 'one of the High Priestesses of Australian burlesque'. One of the most in demand performers at the height of Australia's burlesque revival and winner of the Miss Burlesque Victoria 2013 title, she has been included in the UK 21st Century Burlesque Magazine's list of Top 10 Australian Burlesque Personalities. She has performed her unique brand of burlesque, an irreverent mix of slapstick and striptease from West Australian RSL halls to The House of Blues in New Orleans and an eclectic variety of establishments in between. Her debut solo show Shake revealed her skill as a storyteller and garnered a slew of four and five star reviews and award nominations during its seasons in Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth and Montreal.
