BWW Review: Can Can's Sexy European Cabaret BONBONBWW Review: Can Can's Sexy European Cabaret BONBON
by Jay Irwin - Jan 23, 2019

Dear Readers, if you deem to venture into the sultry world of Can Can's newest show, "Bonbon", you may walk away with several feelings. First, you'll probably have a need to hit the gym more because, well, damn! Second, there's the impetus to slink and sashay down the street afterward humming a sexy torch song (and since you may have had a few drinks while there, this may actually happen). And finally, you may come to the strange realization that you've never wanted to be a suspender or garter (or possibly both) so much in your entire life. But whichever of those feelings you let overtake you, what you will have is a kick ass evening filled with song, dance, and enough finely toned skin to give the peep show across the street a run for its money. But, of course, all in the best of taste. (more...)
