Burlesque YouTube: Boylexe Stories

Boylexe Presents Mr Crute

Boylexe Presents Mr Crute

At the heart of our boylesque Boylexe show are the stories of performers and artists and the challenges they have overcome to have their voices heard, so it made sense to start adding these stories as part of our Burlexe Burlesque YouTube channel.

Burlexe is our sister burlesque show, which kicked things off in 2010.

Last year, we published a script sparked by the LGBT issues in Russia and how those events affect artists and their self-expression. Read the Boylexe script.

We’ve subsequently filmed the story with Mr Crute, now one of the regular stars of boylesque show Boylexe. Which we present to you here…

Boylesque show Boylexe meanwhile continues until the end of September 2014. Tickets and details.

Who is boylesque dancer Esquire De Lune?

Esquire De Lune

Esquire De Lune

Memorising, hypnotique and brooding boylesque dancer, Esquire de Lune is the newest shining star on the boylesque scene.

As a fallen angel too beautiful for this world or the swaggering bad boy you just can’t get enough of, Esquire de Lune’s burlesque is sensual, inspiring and dripping with the physical talent that made him one of the top, in demand dancers on the commercial dance circuit.

Prior to entering the world of burlesque, Esquire toured with Take That and Robbie Williams, Girls Aloud, Steps and X Factor and has worked alongside artists such as Shirley Bassey and Whitney Houston to name but a few.

After winning London’s Boylesque Idol competition, Esquire de Lune has gone on to entertain crowds all over the UK and the US.

His neo-burlesque style is dark, dramatic, dreamy and demanding of attention, he will captivate any audience!

We welcome him to Boylexe.

Esquire De Lune will be performing on 29th August, 5th September and 26th September.

Visit the Boylexe Box Office for tickets.
