Feathers will be flying, sequins will be sparkling and double entendres will be in heavy supply when Quinn Lemley and her troupe of backup divas shimmy into West Vancouver next week.
Direct from New York City, they will be performing Burlesque to Broadway, a musical revue with a theatrical twist that pays tribute to some of America’s most iconic female performers.
Lemley’s variety show is the mainstage event at this year’s Kay Meek Centre Fundraising Gala, which will also include a reception, desserts and a raffle. The red-headed vocalist and her divas will be accompanied by a 10-piece big band playing everything from Broadway show tunes to RB favourites. Standout numbers for Lemley include a feathered fan dance to “When You’ve Got it, Flaunt it” from The Producers, “Boom Boom” by John Lee Hooker, “She’s a Lady” by Tom Jones, and the classic “My Heart Belongs to Daddy” by Cole Porter.
With orchestral arrangements by Steve Rawlins, choreography by David Eggers, and eight cases of costumes designed by Wendall Goings, each routine has a completely different flavour. While Burlesque to Broadway celebrates all things glitzy and glamourous, it also pays homage to the powerful women beneath the elaborate getups, big hair and heavy makeup.
