Merriam-Webster defines burlesque as theatrical entertainment of a broadly humorous often earthy character consisting of short turns, comic skits, and sometimes striptease acts. This productions focuses on the striptease acts. Only one of the dances was comical. It’s an airplane based scene where an audience member is brought on stage. After teasing him for a while, they wheel him behind a screen and the word “Occupied” appears. Behind the screen, you can see one of the dancers kneeling in front in the audience member as everyone wonders what is happening back there. It is a very moment.
There is one sexy scene which doesn’t feature any dancing. Instead it is a stop motion piece where the dancers pose for a few seconds in the light, the stage goes dark, and then they move into the next position. The scene involves a bathtub and pouring water onto each other in a scintillating manner.
There is one aerialist who very athletically performs. She flips and flies across the stage in an impressive manner. In fact, most of the acts are big, rocking, and showy. The title of X Rocks more accurately describes this show than X Burlesque.
