Allen Cummings was great and that's about it. Three of us went, none of us enjoyed it. Not at all what we expected- it was all we could do to not leave at intermission. When the show was finally over, there actually is a story but it took way to long to know it and the show was extraordinarily raunchy

We had great seats, medium priced. Cummings was brilliantly fabulous! I was in total awe of him. He was constantly on - which is difficult when one is on stage as much as he was (even when in the background). His timing, the costuming, his facial expressions, movements --- everything he did was so brilliant! He was fantastic and amazing!!... More

We came here for a bachelorette party. We got great seats and great service. The show was fantastic. They even did something special for the bride. I will definitely return!

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
