Where do I begin?? I love to visit NY and catch a show or two. I was told that this show was one of the best. I was not familiar with Alan Cummings. BUT OH MY GOSH, I AM NOW. He was simply amazing. You could not take your eyes off him and not smile during the performance. I had... More

The cast was very good. Didn't think Michelle Williams had the pipes to play the part Liza did so well. She was charming and did a good job, but felt let down somewhat with the vocals. 'Maybe This Time' was her best effort. The Emcee was brilliant and such a card! Subject matter was, of course disturbing with the Nazi's... More

Our group was visiting from Orlando. We did some of the expected tourist stuff: Broadway show, ferry ride, the Highline. I wanted to see a show that was more in tune with the local scene. I noticed that there are a few burlesque shows in NYC, but picked Le Scandal because it seemed to be in business the longest, and... More

Easy going fun night out, right on Broadway, for reasonable price. I read reviews of this show that date all the way back to 2004. They have been in business since 2001. The early reviews were good, but complaints about the show's first venue. Show now at The West Bank Café-Laurie Beechman Theater, a cozy cabaret venue with good service.... More

The show was very good. There's about 10 different performances and they vary from burlesque to sword swallowing to acrobatics. The place is a little small but you can still see well if you're in the back. I would suggest getting there early so you can sit close to the front. We walked by the place a couple times. We... More

My wife brought me here with another couple for her birthday and I will be honey I didn't know what to expect, it was so unexpected to say the least. Just a great show start to finish, while every performance was different and some were better than others, it was truly a great show. The juggling guy was absolutely great... More

Saw the great reviews and wanted to see what it was all about. The food was average and would satisfy the grumbling stomach. Since there was a $15 minimum for food/drinks...we just decided to dine here. Show was cute. Nothing crazy sexy to really brag about, though the ladies were all beautiful and entertaining. I kind of wish there were... More

I loved this show, but then again, I'm a fan of America's Got Talent, so I'm partial to variety, vaudeville type entertainment. I spent much of my early 20s in Europe, where cabarets are part historically part of the night life entertainment. I feel like Le Scandal captured the essence of the German cabaret, sexy French burlesque, and American goofy... More

I gave Le Scandal Cabaret 5 stars, because we got a great show, and a great dinner, and burlesque prizes! So the entire evening was seamless night of fun. The show had 3 very unusual variety acts, I think I remember 3 very different burlesque performers, live music, charming host, and a chance to win burlesque prizes. If you have... More

What a fun night. The entertainment was cute. The food was subpar, except the gnocchi. Cutesy entertainment with some pretty scary sword swallowing, juggling, and general all around craziness. Well worth the visit.
