I had already had an amazing expressive just communicating with the dolls before the event even began. They were extremely professional but also personable. The day before the event we had a lineup change that could've messed up the whole show, but they were able to adjust with me and actually made the whole event even that much better!! They interacted with the audience and gave a performance to remember. People are still talking about them. If you were hesitant on booking them, don't be. They are all the say to be and more!
Response from Dirty Dolls Revue:
Thank you so much, Renee! We had a wonderful time performing at your event! It was so easy to communicate with you and we were glad we could help the lineup run more smoothly. We loved your crowd, everyone was so polite and enthusiastic! Hope to work with you next year!!!
Mary Contrary, Scarlett Siren and Dahlia Gray provided us with an amazing show! Costumes, choreography, music...all were amazing. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the show!!
