Burlesque throwback more fun than ever
by Larry Murray
Everyone who reads Berkshire on Stage knows by now my personal delight in the naughty but innocent burlesque company, Gypsy Layne. One reason is that they keep reinventing themselves, and have innovated the addition of men doing well what women do best. So here’s another variation on their show, due in Pittsfield for two nights only as part of the 10×10 Festival. (Event Schedule) Mark my words, the first winter thaw will arrive with this company. You better believe the heat they will generate will melt not only the nearby snow, but your inhibitions as well.
So how do we describe this naughty performance company? For that, let’s defer to their own words:
Sizzling. Sultry. Cool. Playful. Outrageous…and that’s just half of it. What’s your favorite shade of Gypsy Layne? The Berkshire’s first homegrown burlesque and cabaret troupe colors you wild this February with their latest extravaganza, 10 Shades of Gypsy Layne, part of Pittsfield’s 10×10 Festival. The acts are eclectic as the Gypsies themselves, and electrifying. Two nights, 10 shades, endless possibilities.
