The Canary Cage Launch

Liz Lacey paints the town red at Baby Blue

The Canary Cage Launch

Down in the bowels of Baby Blue, something saucy was stirring. Liverpool Confidential popped down for a taster.

An irrepressible young lady, Felicia Noir, followed, continuing the health and safety theme by illustrating the hazards of a German Beer Festival if one attempts to pour a pint into a half-pint stein. She ended up with foam decorating an already impressive chest.

Kelly, Frank and Phoenix launched the first of their new Burlesque shows, with a touch of cabaret, some cheeky jewellery and corset shopping opportunities thrown in.

Our compere was the bouncy Mr Frisk; a chap whose liking for a rude song and the single innuendo endeared him at once to a glamorously-dressed audience.

First to mount the stage was the delightful Ally Katte who drew attention to the controversial issue of adequate kit for soldiers by the simple expedient of removing hers. Then Velma Von Bon Bon performed a useful and instructive dance which demonstrated the dangers to be encountered from bees in an English country garden. Thankfully, no bees were harmed; and Miss Bon Bon enthralled an audience charmed by her original way with a watering can.

As well as ravishing ladies, jolly music and inventive costumes, the Canary Cage had some lovely singing, provided by the suave , smooth, and really rather handsome Mr Alan Cross.

One young lady in the audience forgot herself to the extent of shouting out “He’s fit!” at our debonair Mr Cross, who naturally blushed to his roots. More music with slinky moves came from the silver-throated Frank Diablo and hot red-head Phoenix Snow, giving us a fiery version of ‘White Wedding’.

Filthy Mr Frisk kept the mood lewd by eliciting some suggestions from the audience as to what he might adopt as a nickname for pet parts of his body, what they might choose as a Burlesque name for themselves, and led them in a series of increasingly risqué songs. There was a bar, but many of these lively young people seemed to get nicely loosened up on tea and cupcakes. Ah, irrepressible youth.

The second half whizzed by in a whirl of mischievous acts from the same stable of talented performers, most of whom were home-grown Liverpolitans.

The evening was a huge success for all concerned, and the next show will be on Tuesday 7 September. Do come along, if you warm to the idea of a mixture of mirth, music, and minxatiousness. Many miles away from being crude, it’s a show in the best traditions of old-style glamour and Carry-On style cheekiness.
