Boylesque show Boylexe is a spin-off from the critically acclaimed burlesque show Burlexe.

The second in artistic director Howard Wilmot’s cabaret trilogy, the show takes a similar theatrical format, mixing storytelling, song and male striptease or ‘boylesque’ with a pinch of drag.

Our shows star the very best of the UK cabaret and boylesque scene specially handpicked for their roles in the show and are available in various formats.

Boylesque show Boylexe moved to a new venue, Cecil’s in London Bridge in 2015 though its next incarnation is in association with Burlexe for This Is Burlexe.
