  • Great show! Great vibe! Awesome MC! Hot dancers! Sexy night! Great show you guys! Have a great run!
  • Great show. Really enjoyed everything. costumes were great, dancers fantastic and sexy. The audience off the chain fun.
  • As an homage to Star Wars, this show is amazing. As a burlesque show, this show is everything. I laughed. I wept. My feet were tapping and my hands were clapping the entire time. I would definitely book a trip to the area just to see this show again. Thank you to the dancers, the emcee, the lighting/ backstage/ sound/ choreographers... all involved should take a well deserved bow.
  • Fantastic show!!! So much fun!!
  • Superb! All the girls and others were fun and fantastic! What a blast!
  • Overall show was good. Dancer made few mistakes here and there but nothing that could highly compromise the show. The show was pretty fun and I had lots of fun. Unfortunately, the show has no story and I was a bit bored while host was talking, probably was his first time but seems like he lack of carisma and words to make the show interesting. Show has a solid 3.5 stars with lots of potential.
  • This show was amazing and exceeded all expectations! It was sexy, filled with comedy, and overall left me in good spirits. No one should miss out on this show, there’s a reason it sells out every night!
  • The show was hilarious. I lived every minute of it.
  • Words can't describe how great this show was. The sets, costumes, lighting, and of course performances were all incredibly well done. I loved the variety and humor. I'd give you 20 stars if it was an option! Thanks for such a fantastic evening!
