“ There are only so many places where you can watch burlesque and Unicorn porn under one roof. Unbridled, Untitled’s new variety show, is about as bareback as they come. Directed by longtime Chicago burlesque performer Angela Eve, the revamp production now feels like one big love letter to a sexy version of John Waters. Here, the big and bizarre are celebrated alongside wispy pole dancers and upside down creepy acrobats”

“It was very impressive, the smooth, but sometimes jerky, contorted, topless movements that she was able to make while hovering over the audience. It really took the Burlesque performance to a new level, and her heart came through in every movement, in every position. With a rock-star intensity she impressed us, she aroused us, she inspired us.”

“One act I had especially been looking forward to was Angela Eve. Having only seen her in pictures, I was stoked to finally catch her live. Normally a brunette, Angela looked stunning as blonde bombshell Jayne Mansfield. She started with sultry gypsy-like moves succumbing to Don Corbitt’s devilish Anton LeVey breaking into 60′s style gogo dancing, winding up in aerial straps – it was like catching three acts in one. Angela is so strong as an aerialist, the crowd was eerily hushed for much of her act.”
