As many of you know by now, Luscious Cabaret returns to The Albany on Friday, March 3rd, as part of a double bill with Jeu Jeu la Foille’s Frontal Lobotomy. Today we’re delving a little deeper into what this hit Edinburgh show is all about…
First of all, we should introduce Jeu Jeu la Foille herself – this multi-talented performer (she’s trained in physical theatre, voice, puppetry, and clowning) is one of the most established personalities on the UK burlesque and cabaret scene.
Frontal Lobotomy is her first solo show, which debuted at the Fringe in 2016 at the Laughing Horse Free Festival to amazing reviews. Featuring one of the most unique topics we’ve encountered in burlesque – the transorbital lobotomy – the show’s surreal and witty narrative is enhanced by Jeu Jeu’s varied skills, such as spoken word, “beatnik” burlesque, and puppetry.
If all of this sounds wonderfully intriguing, don’t miss the chance to book in and see Frontal Lobotomy for free (donations encouraged!) from 7:30pm on March 3rd, and stay for Luscious Cabaret from 8:30pm!
