“Burlesque University”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

I went to the university where they teach you how to put on fake eye lashes and dance. It was fun but I expected the show girl to look like a show girl as in attire. She was dressed in jeans and a jacket. I guess I expected a little more glamour.

“Complete waste of money”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

Not even close to a burlesque show. It's really just girls dancing to music like they are in a music video and then take their top off at the end. The best part of the show is the intermission. The first come first seating is a joke and the seats are not laid out for the room. Would cost the same and be better to just go to a strip club

“Not worth the time”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Visited the X Burlesque at the Flamingo and the time you spend during the show is not worth it. The best part of the show was the comedian. My advice is to spend some money and see a real Vegas show; do not waste your time here.

“Save your money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

We took in this "burlesque" show while on a recent anniversary trip to Las Vegas. Not what I was expecting at all, being that we were in Las Vegas and all. To be honest I didn't find it much different than being at a strip club. After all, a stripper pole in the middle of the room? Come on. Not the glitzy, Vegas-y type of show that I was anticipating. Others have pointed out about all of a sudden it's HELLO, breasts...with no lead-up or anything. Blaring music that once again reminds you of a strip club. The seating arrangement was weird and cramped, not to mention the rock-hard chairs that you have to sit on for over an hour.

If you are in Vegas make sure to do yourself a favour and avoid the X Burlesque show entirely and go to a better show elsewhere...one that lives up to the hype and delivers on performance.

“Expected much better..”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

...after all, this is VEGAS. Boring dance routines utilized in every dance number with little variation except the costumes. No build-up, no erotica, just hello - here are breasts. Music was overpoweringly loud with poor quality sound system. Seating is "general" but you are still seated wherever the gentleman seats you and the set up was very poor. Chairs are set up so you are literally half/twisted to see the stage with absolutely zero room between chairs.

Glad we utilized the Half Price Tickets (would have been very upset to have paid full price for this) but sorry we wasted 75 minutes on such a poor show. Now we know to head to one of the better shows.
