Dire. Amateurish beyong belief. The worst show that I have ever endured at the Fringe - I couldn’t even endure it for long. We walked out to avoid wasting an hour of our lives. My advice - save your money and sanity by avoiding like the plague.

We were willing to give this show a chance, but we should have read the reviews here first, because they accurately describe the problem: The venue is beautiful, the artists probably deserve better than what they've been put into (The aerial artists we did see were amazing, despite the jarring music). The setup could be perfect, sensual and inspiring, but instead we get an awkward, cringeworthy and frankly uncomfortable to endure MC, who belts earsplittingly and in character frankly makes it feel like he is molesting his fellow artists on stage. From the first minute it feels off, misogynistic, very dated and non-inclusive. We left after the second act, the MCs song. Tl:Dr If you want to see the actually amazing show this might have been, go see "Rouge"!!!!

Thought I’d have a look at this show on the spur of the moment, and disappointed I did! I’ve only ever left two shows in my life, and this was the second.
Time slot is totally wrong for this show, but that’s not really the issue for me. Performing in lingerie is nothing new in shows selling themselves as sexy, and the performers are all attractive and capable performers, and possibly even better than that, and that’s not the problem for me either.
There are plenty of raucous and risqué shows at the Fringe, and many are great fun!!
But, this show is both lame, and totally misogynistic at the same time - seriously, if the performers aren’t up to expectations the MC will set to them with an outsized dildo!?? Really? Simulated sex and intimations of oral sex ? And while the host is billed as flirtatious and saucy, he’s so far off that mark! Even his ‘demeaning of his fan “pet”’ was sad more than dominating.
Loud, crass, not funny….
Don’t waste your money.

It was an ok show. The aerial artistry was by far the best part. Very dancing orientatedn and got a little confusing at times with whether to look with dancing on the stage with aerial acts going on. Humour was mostly obvious and cliche, but could do the job of you like that. Audience participation seemed forced and not organic. Left thinking meh.

Wanderlust is a riotous treat. Bringing dynamic dance routines, spellbinding musical numbers, seductive burlesque, and electrifying aerial gymnastics to the Assembly George Square Gardens’ Palais du Variete.
