Yesterday "The Missy Malone & Friends Burlesque Revue" took a road trip to The Torch Theatre in Milford Haven, Wales! The show sold out a month in advance so eveyone was very excited to be performing for a full house!

The stellar line up included: Sherry Trifle, Scarlett Daggers, Viva Misadventure, Emerald Ace, Desmond O'Connor and little ol' me!

The Torch was a beautiful Theatre ( and suited the style of the show down to a tee. It also had an amazing in house tech team! (Thanks again guys!). Here is a little sneak peek at yesterdays proceedings:

Yesterday I headed to Manchester to perform at "Manchester 235 Casino Goes Burlesque". It was a super glitzy affair and the casino location and decor worked perfectly!

I was performing alongside the wonderful Millie Dollar, Velma Von Bon Bon, Coco Malone and Rosie Lagosi. The entertainment part of the evening was also produced by the lovely Bella Besame of Slippery Belle. It is always a real treat to work with friends you have known for years, it hardly feels like work!

 After the show I relaxed in my new favourite dress the "Malone" by 20th Century Foxy it is such a perfect fit and highlights all the right curves! You can get you hands on your very own here: Millie Dollar wears a vintage 60's dress!

Last Thursday I headed to London for a couple of fun filled days of performing and catching up with old friends!

It was extra special as I was catching up with my dear old friend (and old burlesque double act partner!) Foxy Rouge! It had been three years since we had last saw each other so there was allot to catch up on! Foxy has been back in her homeland of New Zealand for the last few years and is now heading of to exotic lands for far flung adventures and it was great to get to she her before she left again! I have missed her!

Rouge & Malone Reunited!
So after a chilled afternoon on Brick Lane Foxy, Cherry (our beautiful hostess with the mostess) and I headed to Soho as I was performing at the wonderful "Bete Noire" at the iconic Madame JoJo's. I am so glad I got to perform at "Bete Noire" in this incarnation before it takes a break in proceedings.

On Friday after brunch at the All Star Diner Foxy and I headed to The Getty Images Gallery to see the "Marilyn" exhibition, to commemorate 50 years since her death. Click Here! It is a lovely little exhibition of candid images of Marilyn and also includes some of the costumes that I saw that the Marilyn exhibition in Bath back in October, well worth a visit for any Marilyn fans and its free!! Here are a couple of my fave images from the show:

Next we went for a wander around iconic Carnaby Street and took in the sights!

We then gave in to tourist temptation and visited "Ripley's Believe it or Not? Museum" and we enjoyed spending a couple of hours messing around and looking at the oddities! My favourite rooms were the Marilyn collection and the shrunken heads!

Foxy and Charming Mr Fox!

Me and the tallest man in the world!

Foxy is not sure about her new knickers!
We then took a break for tea and cake and met up with our pal Paul Zenon before we headed to "Cafe De Paris" as I was performing at the beautiful "La Reve"!

I headed home yesterday and enjoyed a relaxed weekend at home which makes a nice change! Also I would like to say "Happy Mother's Day" to my beautiful mama!!

Bluestocking Lounge!

On Saturday I headed to Wales to teach my sold out Fandance Workshop and later to perform at the fabulous sold out "Bluestocking Lounge" at the Grand Theatre.

After a mad dash to the dance studio (after train delays thanks to the Wales vs France Rugby match!)
I arrived by the skin of my teeth! We had a fantastic workshop and the girls were all fab and super keen!

 After the workshop I relaxed for a couple of hours with a cup of tea and a power nap on the stage as everything was being set up in the venue! The show was awesome fun and had a really happy, relaxed atmosphere, I had a blast! The shows line up included Lilly Laudanum, Penny Bizarre, Sandy Sure, Primrose Proper, Boris & Doris and The Dawn of Spring!  After the show I enjoyed pasta and a good natter into the night with Penny & Lilly before a painfully early start this morning to catch my train home!

This weekend I had the pleasure of performing at a "Pussy Galore" triple whammy at Volupte in London! I always love performing at this show as it is full of class acts that I am proud to call my friends.

On Friday night the line up included Gracie, Luna Rosa, AJ James, Cherry Shakewell and myself! It was a lovely show and we all enjoyed a drink and natter after the show!

On Saturday I enjoyed brunch at my fave diner with two of my favorite gals, Cherry Shakewell and Vicky Butterfly! Then Vicky and I spent the rest of the afternoon trawling the vintage shops around Brick Lane.
