Seattle burlesque royalty, the Can Can Castaways, put on an all-male cowboy themed show at The Triple Door tonight, with two more shows to go, this weekend. Several regulars and a couple of guys I haven’t seen at the Can Can before, made up a sexy crew of dancing studs. As with any cabaret show, the plot is minimal, but sufficient to tie the dance numbers together; boys from the country head to the city to make the big money.
The individual dances tended toward erotic over avant-garde, with plenty of physical, mildly raunchy, humor scattered about. The Deputy easily gets the best introductory song…not really ‘country’, but he’s wearing a cowboy hat =p
The crowd enjoyed the show, and the audience members brought on for participation bits, worked well. They did a good job of mixing guys and gals on stage, and one of the women was quite eager to get her hands on the guys, perhaps even more than they expected, but ever the showmen, they rolled with it, and everyone had fun.
The Triple Door was reasonably on it’s game tonight. I could hear one table near me expressing frustration at getting their first order in after being seated, having to grab a bus boy to find their waiter eventually. I got reasonable service, and enjoyed my 7-flavor beef (I could swear when they first opened up it was 9-flavor).
