Welcome to 'Fringe'... The Pleasure Garden!



'The Pleasure Garden'.. there's something very Adam and Eve about the sound of that n'est pas :) In fact it is the destination of some very entertaining times for Perthites and visitors over the next four weeks. Yesterday evening was the opening of Fringe World 2014, and the gorgeous ladies above will take part in some of the burlesque shows, they looked so fabulous in every shot I took that it was almost impossible to choose!  Since it's introduction to the WA arts and cultural scene back in 2011 'Fringe' has been such such a success that it gets bigger each year, with over 450 local, national and international entertainers in town.... 


Young man studying the Fringe World Festival magazine.. I know how he feels, so much to see , so little time! I'm determined to see more of the festival this year, for myself and for you.  I was a bit excited to be invited as a guest + one to the 'Twisted Vaudeville Circus, looking forward to that, also 'La Belle Epoque'.. So, busy times around Perth...again! Off to see mermaids swimming in a tank tomorrow....don't ask :) Have a great weekend, take care and stay safe.....

  4. I think I would like this event very much! Especially the burlesque. Vaudeville and Burlesque were just about gone when I was young. I do remember seeing the movie, "South Pacific," in an old burlesque theater in Minneapolis when I was in the Navy.
