On Monday, I attended the opening show for La Coquette Cabaret, a new venue run by Dani Sari.
The theme for the show was Mardi Gras and the show itself was full of frolic, fun, and of course, the quintessential Mardi Gras color palette of green, purple, and gold.
The opening act was spectacular, with the dancers arriving via circus hoops, resplendent in their Mardi Gras finery.
After the opening group number, Diva took to the stage.
The set build was fantastic and she had some gorgeous particle effects.
The performers did a terrific job, especially considering that a couple of hours prior to showtime, SL was experiencing the ever-dreaded ‘unscheduled maintenance.’
Next up was Dani herself.
I loved the set for this routine; I thought it was such a creative use of object and avatar movers. 🙂
(Note: She was wearing pasties, but since I try to keep things G-rated on the blog, I had to drag out my trusty ‘censored’ bar!)
The next act was a bit of a switch from the fun and frolic of Bourbon Street, but was a fabulous routine about the famous (infamous) voodoo queen Marie Laveau.
After Marie had her way with a couple of unsuspecting ‘Joe’s,’ we headed back to Bourbon Street.
I loved the concept of this routine. A girl wanders down the street, peering into store windows, and then magically joins the store mannequin in a dance.
And the costumes were gorgeous!
A terrific use of mirrored dances in this set.
After all the glitter was cleared off the stage, it was time for the hottest act of the night. 😀
I tried to snap a quick pic from the rear (a gorgeous view itself), but didn’t manage it. So, another appearance of the black bar.
Having made it through without a hitch, it was time for the last act of the show.
Another group act, it was done in true Mardi Gras style – glitter and fabulous costumes!
The show was fantastic. If you missed it, they are doing an encore show on Monday, February 29 (leap day!) at 6:30pm.
