Since 1998, in Philadelphia PA, one troupe has kept the spirit of cabaret, burlesque and all-around “showbizzy-ness” alive by presenting a new show each month — The Peek-A-Boo Revue! An adults-only pastiche of singing, dancing, and comedy all wrapped up in a Burlesque Show! Starting humbly in The Five Spot niteclub as a variety show created by the owner Phil Cohen, who also sheparded the group as its producer and staunchest ally, the show grew rapidly. What started as a Wed. evening affair would blossom into 2 shows every 1st Sat. A show freshly-minted EACH Month! The group would eventually ‘morph’ into a tight-knit cast of friends, an ensemble of men and women capable of almost anything onstage (and sometimes even offstage). The group (dubbed as a ‘neo-burlesque’ troupe) has performed for a wide-range of audiences over the years, and been attached to many high-profile events, festivals and causes (willing to attach the ‘edgy’ elements of burlesque) including: The Cartoon Network’s ADULT SWIM Fan Picture Show Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim 4 your lives(part of the Festival of Independents) The Velvet Hammer Documentary’s Philadelphia premiere The Philadelphia Gay and Lesbian Film Festivals Cirque de Soleil’s post-premiere party (2002 and 2004) Jennifer Tilley (Bound over Broad Street) Criminal Convention (PIGLFF) The Philadelphia Fringe Festival – Late Night Cabaret In Liquid Arts Benefit (PA) Womens Coalition for Sexual Freedom (PA) Azuka Lounge: A Happy Hour Event Holiday Bash!
