Today’s review:

Briefs

(Briefs)

Stephanie Quilligan’s review: Briefs is a camp and entertaining spectacle of imagination. Hosted by a bearded and beautiful Samoan drag queen, the show captivated and shocked the audience with their tricks, costumes or lack thereof and pumping music. Starting with a group performance involving lots of feathers, our host introduced each ‘ugly briefs boy’ and their talents – hula-hooping, juggling and aerial acrobatics, in between many costume changes that would make you ‘jealous’ – private joke from the show! Each act is unique and I actually learnt a few things about Samoan culture and everything! Briefs is outrageous and super fun for all!

In three words? Camp. Entertaining. Outrageous.
