Ventnor Fringe: The Sensible Undresser

International burlesque star Elsie Diamond is ready to let you know the truth about the so-called glamorous world of cabaret. Through song, spoken word and of course, striptease, Elsie invites you backstage which in many cases is a toilet cubicle. A comic, naughty and honest piece about the career of an ordinary girl who dreams of life on the burlesque stage.

With her stunning voice, decadent costumes and hilarious audience interaction, Elsie creates a sumptuous journey through decades, genres and emotions.
