Her name is Darlinda (Just Darlinda) and she will send ya, just send ya. She set my head on fire. She's the reason I could taste blood this morning from screaming my head off during her two trips to strip on the Spiegeltent stage where she taunted and teased and bumped as a featured performer in Princess Wendy's Late Nite Tease Room.
But it was so much more than straight up T&A affair. The platinum-headed Princess Wendy lorded over this glorious low-brow affair with mucho enthusiasm and her magic wand. There was a heavy metal magician, jugglers, a rather creepy trench-coat type character with a bullwhip, a super-lithe aerial performer who took my breath away ... and of course, Darlinda. This was classic burlesque at its rowdy best. Goddamn!
Princess Wendy's Late Nite Tease Room will be performed again on Thursday, September 24, Friday, September 25, and Saturday, September 26, in the Speigeltent. 9:30 p.m. $18. Appropriate for mature audiences.
