Set in the seedy world of 1950s burlesque in Sydney, The Burlesque Effect follows straight-laced suburbanite James, who falls victim to a seductive world as he ventures into The Scarlet Lounge and meets beautiful dancer Honey.
The Scarlet Lounge, run by veteran Fleur, is a haven for men seeking a good time and the dancers are seductive... but go too far, and watch out, they bite back.
Featuring 10 burlesque routines, The Burlesque Effect is a fast-paced emotional ride of dancing and drama.
