Welcome to Charm School Burlesque at Lady Like the Show
Article by Joslyn Hatfield
Lady Like, A Retro Modern Burlesque Show, takes on the “traditional woman’s role” from the 1950s to the 1960s with an edgy twist. The new show opened with a limited engagement preview on the Las Vegas Strip in June before announcing an impending venue change (yet to be announced).
Set in charm school, the cheeky Headmistress will tease the audience with a journey through time, exploring what it means to be ladylike then and now.
Inspired by the vintage era, Lady Like blends retro style burlesque with a modern attitude, creatively pairing striptease and acclaimed choreography by JKay Choreography, showcasing some of the best and hottest dancers in Las Vegas. This tongue-in-cheek twist on charm school will tease the audience through the sexiest acts on the Strip. Some of the featured songs include “Tell him,” by the Exciters mixed with Hotline Bling, “Lingerie” by Lizzo, and “You F. O.” By Stella Cole.
Created by Jaimee Gallego and Summer Soltis, the producers “wanted to bring sexy back to the Las Vegas Strip that everyone can enjoy. This is the perfect show for couples, bachelor and bachelorette parties, and friends hanging out.
Headmistress, Maren Wade, has shined on the stage in The Cocktail Cabaret, 50 Shades. The Parody, Pin Up, Vegas Nocturne, Fantasy, Vegas! The Show, Dancing Queen, and ICandy. She has been featured on America’s Got Talent and The National Radio City Tour with the Rockettes. Maren has toured nationally with football legend Terry Bradshaw in America’s Favorite Dumb Blonde and sang back up for Wayne Newton.
