New Type of Burlesque Show: Cherry Boom Boom” by Sandy Zimmerman

I was invited to the “Cherry Boom Boom’s” grand opening red carpet event at the OYO Hotel, formally Hooters and was happy to find a very different show!

“Cherry Boom Boom” is different from any burlesque show you have ever seen! Instead of sensuous romantic music, you will experience a more intense, more dramatic version of high energy dancing.

The drama continues with wild, undefined movements, quick turns, and dancers hanging seductively from the bars. Suddenly one of the dancers jumps up and then continues her dance. Dancing to Heavy Metal music brings a whole new view of burlesque!  They don’t strip, the are not topless, and all of the dancers are professional with a lot of action, fun, and unexpected surprises. Watch for the surprises!

One woman dances and performs a special act hanging by her neck in a chocking stance. The cast continually moves from the stage to the middle section of the showroom. One dancer crawled along the railing, another danced on the railing, they each used this area to show off.

With some high energy almost like Metal Head rock concerts, you’ll see jazz pieces and a wide arrangement of styles. There’s something for everyone!

As a reviewer for more than 20 years, I did expect something different and wow, “Cherry Cherry Boom Boom” is different! In fact, I don’t think this is a burlesque show because the cast doesn’t strip.

Located in the OYO Hotel and Casino, formally Hooter’s Hotel, 115 E. Tropicana Avenue.  1-866-584-6687.
