It’s the most wonderful time of the year: time for the Peek-A-Boo Revue Holiday Show! The babes of The Boo are going to get you in the mood by stripping down and spreading their shimmies all around. Muff Johnson is back to treat you to her sultry sweet voice and her silly-yet-smart comedy. She will be hosting alongside Count Scotchula, who’s been known to make you laugh until you cry. The Striptease Orchestra will have you bumping and grinding in your seats to their live music. Don’t let winter pass you by without seeing Philly’s longest running burlesque show!
The historic Milton Theatre is a uniquely diverse venue where you will find the best local, regional, national, and international talent. Free municipal and on-street parking are available. Full bar and light food options available. This facility is fully accessible.https://www.miltontheatre.com/event/1564792/
Since 1998, in Philadelphia PA, one troupe has kept the spirit of cabaret, burlesque and all-around “showbizzy-ness” alive by presenting a new show each month — The Peek-A-Boo Revue! An adults-only pastiche of singing, dancing, and comedy all wrapped up in a Burlesque Show!
Starting humbly in The Five Spot niteclub as a variety show created by the owner Phil Cohen, who also sheparded the group as its producer and staunchest ally, the show grew rapidly. What started as a Wed. evening affair would blossom into 2 shows every 1st Sat. A show freshly-minted EACH Month!
The group would eventually ‘morph’ into a tight-knit cast of friends, an ensemble of men and women capable of almost anything onstage (and sometimes even offstage). The group (dubbed as a ‘neo-burlesque’ troupe) has performed for a wide-range of audiences over the years, and been attached to many high-profile events, festivals and causes (willing to attach the ‘edgy’ elements of burlesque) including:
The Cartoon Network’s ADULT SWIM Fan Picture Show
Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim 4 your lives(part of the Festival of Independents)
The Velvet Hammer Documentary’s Philadelphia premiere
The Philadelphia Gay and Lesbian Film Festivals
Cirque de Soleil’s post-premiere party (2002 and 2004)
Jennifer Tilley (Bound over Broad Street) Criminal Convention (PIGLFF)
