Review by Kieran Eaton
Seen and Heard opens your eyes and ears to host and show creator, Becky Lou’s favourite variety acts. They are all people close to Lou’s heart – performers of burlesque and cabaret who don’t often get the chance to open up and tell their stories.
Becky Lou has a burlesque background so is very comfortable being exposed onstage. She embraces her daggy nature, really allows the audience to connect with her on an equal level. Lou is your every-lady and this allows it to be less confronting in the age where we expect to be perfect. This cheeky seductress knows she has a naughty side but her main agenda is love.
Seen and Heard starts with Lou doing her Burlesque thing, with humour and quirkiness. This sets up her opening monologue – an embarrassing story that she is very candid about. Then she brings on her acts with an immense amount of warmth, creating a very supportive space for them to bare all. Every night has different acts and all will surprise you with their frivolity. This night there are two burlesques and two dancers of unique styling. All four guest acts entertain with huge stage presence and cheek, creating laughs out loud throughout. When the night ends, you felt like giving them all a hug!
Come on down if you want to be mesmerised by Lou’s good-natured show.
