Deadly Sins Burlesque

Why book Deadly Sins Burlesque?

Lexington's Burlesque & Sideshow at its finest!
Deadly Sins Burlesque is a glittering collision of class, sass, ass, and over-the-top vaudevillian entertainment. They first cut their rhinestone-encrusted teeth in 2008, and quickly became a diamond in the rough, having graced (and disgraced) stages across Kentucky.
If anyone knows how to get a crowd rolling (and writhing) in the aisles...it's these sparkle spackled women and these burly men. Deadly Sins is one lethal combination of hip shakin' and heart breakin'! The performers are as individual as the stars on the walk of fame - cute and geeky, rock 'n' roll, classic and elegant - audiences can't help but favorite two or three!

FANTASTIC

I saw the girls perform in between bands at the Rake's End in Cincy and they were AMAZING! Beautiful girls. Funny. Sexy. Over the top. I didn't expect to get such awesome entertainment at this show. These girls are awesome!

9.5 out of 10

The Deadly Sins Burlesque troupe are a unique group of individuals who continuously show improvement with every performance. Each girl has their own creative and beautiful style, and with each act, you get sizzle, sparkle, class, humor, and entertainment. On a scale of 1 to 10, these ornate and beautiful ladies get a 9.5. Why not a ten? Because with each performance I see, it always just keeps getting better and better, and I know they will always improve. Flavia, Scarlett, Trashique, and the rest of this amazing group are worth seeing a million times over.

Good sideshow

Sideshow was great, burlesque missed the mark. Not sexy... very awkward.

Excellent performance and some very talented performers.

The group did an amazing job at the Green Lantern. The young lady with a fan was great. The best dancer was probably Flavia Frenchname. The Yogi tricks were cool, but the broken glass trick and the razors was probably the best act...after the ladies of course.

Absolutely Wonderful

We saw these girls in Eminence for a gig with Ford Theatre and Hellblinki and weren't fans of them before (a.k.a. didn't know the troupe existed), but we had seen the bands before. There were only a couple of girls, but they were so beautiful and wonderful! The floor was packed dirt, and the audience were steampunk pirate versions of themselves on picnic tables, but these girls ROCKED it. They didn't care if their costumes got dirty, and went full tilt for a very entertaining evening. And they brought one of the best belly dancers we've seen in AWHILE! I would definitely go see them again pending they were close enough to our home.

Awful! Not burlesque!

Sloppy, drunk girls in Wal-Mart panties walking around the audience barefoot in pasties, a complete mess. This should be billed as a pity party, not a burlesque show. Don't waste your time or money!

Unprofessional and tacky

Some friends and I went and saw them at a bar in Cincinnati, and it was AWFUL. Two of the girls were out front smoking in their "costumes". We are avid burley fans, and have been to tens of dozens of other burlesque shows all over the country, and this was SO unrehearsed and messy. We're used to glitz, glamour, and an actual SHOW, not just some girls stapling dollar bills to their chests. No thank you!

Response from Deadly Sins Burlesque:

We, unfortunately, were unable to bring the entirety of our show to Frankfort that certain evening. We were asked to do the show on a fly and only had two girls who were available for the date. We definitely weren't on our game and we apologize to those it affected. We did all that we could to scrounge all we could together in such a small timeframe. So we are sorry to have disappointed audience members with our performance.

A total must see!

Just an awesome show all around. I've seen these girls multiple times and seem to always be surprised with their performance. Exciting, alluring and ultimately a great and entertaining show. I would recommend them to anyone looks to add a hint of "sin" to their event or party.

Wonderfully Entertaining

I had the pleasure of seeing this group perform in Lexington, KY last June. Very entertaining & classy with a touch of bawdiness. Loved the burlesque dancers and their routines. Funny & sexy without coming across as "cheap or tawdry". Fire breathing was pretty awesome. I wasn't too wild about some of the sideshow acts that were also playing that night.

I've seen them several times, and they're always an absolute treat. Each member adds her own unique flavor to the troupe and they're fantastic about getting the crowd involved and putting on a great show! Having been exposed to multiple burlesque acts, I'd say they're THE group to look out for in this area. A must-see!

They had a girl in the air, twirling!

I've seen a few of the parts shows now, and have never been disapointed. At their debut in June they had this blacklight number where all you could see were specific portions of their body, it was really hot. Then at the halloween show, they had girls doing these crazy awesome Olympic gymnist bends, and running in and out of eachother. For the finale, they had a girl up in the air, twirling her about on their shoulders! I cant wait to see how they top it at their next show!

Glitter in the air

Absolutely beautiful and breath taking. I have been attempting to see one of their shows for awhile and was finally able to see their Halloween show at Cosmic Charlie's. The first act with the Ballerina en pointe was absolute artwork! The transition between acts could be a bit smoother. The group thinks of new and eventful ways to put on a show. Definitely a must see and a must book troupe!

....and the art of the tease! The individual performances are creative and seducing. The group dancing is fun, well choreographed, and cutesy. The songs they dance too have been live performances by Ford Theater Reunion, but if it isn't live, the selections are always tasteful! Trixie DeVille is awesome!

If you haven't seen them................we should change that!

Halloween Was A Blast

I went to the Halloween show Deadly Sins put on at Cosmic Charlies, & must say that it was one of the most entertaining friday nights I have had in a very long time.

The acts where well themed for halloween, with one hell of a finale at the end of the night.

Beautifully done.

I personally enjoyed the ladies' performance. I have to disagree with the .5 reviews stating that they were unprofessional, because they were very much the opposite. Out of all of the troupes I've ever seen live, these girls came alive to me. They seem passionate about their work, and it's my understanding that they had a few new additions to the group as of the past year, which may have given them the air of "unprofessionalism" that is referred to in the "bad" reviews. For a year, I think they're doing fantastic! My personal favorite was the rendition of "Sing Sing Sing" done in total fringe. That girl had the era down! I also enjoyed the classic elements brought in by the solo in blue with the chest...she had lovely movements. The overall show was a hit in my eyes and I'd definitely be back to see them again and to see how they've improved!

No thank you!

What a hack act. They are thoroughly unprofessional, their performance is sloppy and unrehearsed. Their group acts are abysmal. And why would I want to staple a dollar bill to a woman? Or throw a dart at her back. If you're gonna see burlesque in the Lexington area, see Rebel Riot Revue. They don't perform as often but at least they put some effort into it.

Real Burlesque

I've seen these girls several times now, and no two shows have been the same. They are always entertaining, performing everything from sultry seduction dances, to goofy comedy skits. They're always open to new performances too, bringing in new local acts at almost every show I've seen. Very professional, and very traditional burlesque.

Not very professional

The girls were out running around in the crowd before the show in pasties...what's the point of watching them strip after that? It was mostly just walking around the stage and taking clothes off...not much else, I''m afraid.

I'd been meaning to catch their show for a while and things finally lined up for me to see their Halloween show. The girls were amazing! I'd never seen burlesque done before, and it was everything I'd imagined and more. They were quite skilled dancers with a variety of physiques, and each girl worked the stage with enthusiasm to great applause. You could tell they were having fun, which made it even better. Indeed, they were having so much fun, I almost wanted to join their troupe when they were done!

Deadly Sins Burlesque

We've been a name in the burlesque entertainment scene since 2008, with Trixie DeVille heading the trio and working their way into the hearts and souls of Lexington, Kentucky. Other girls had came and went, but Trixie remained, along with her sidekick Trashique D'Lamour. 2011 held a lot of wonderful prospects for the girls and they made a lot of great friends--but in 2012, they gained the beautiful and wonderful Flavia Frenchname, Devereaux Dollface, and Moira von Man-Trapp!

The girls love going to new and exciting places, and would love to book at your venue! They bring with them the most exciting and fun collaboration of neo-burlesque, comedy, and musical theater that you could hope for. If you don't walk away with a smile, there's something wrong. :]

Contact us for booking information & rates. We're down for anything! So don't be afraid to ask! Private party? Sure! Weddings? Done! Bat Mitzvah? Not yet, but we'll give it a shot! :D Throw us an event, & we'll roll with it!

We are also available for teaching workshops [great for bachelorette parties!] if you are interested in having us!
