  • Revival Bar 783 College Street Toronto, ON, M6G 1C5 Canada (map)

“This May, BoylesqueTO, Canada’s premiere all-male burlesque troupe, is celebrating Mother's Day with a magnificent moms-only cabaret followed by a special ONE NIGHT ONLY performance of their hit show A Briefs History of Time! Don't miss your chance to see BoylesqueTO's newest show before they head on down to sunny Florida for a seven show run at the Orlando Fringe Festival!

Special performances from yummy mummies:
💋 Obskyura
💋 Belle Epoque
💋 Cassidy Shaw

Hosted by BoylesqueTO's Head MILF, Balonia Wry!

A Briefs History of Time features chanteuse extraordinaire and hostess-with-the-mostess Shagina Twain as Imperator Furry Rosa, a warrior from a distant future in which men have gone extinct. Furry Rosa has travelled back in time seeking prime specimens of sexy 21st Century men -- you know, for research. And, boy oh boy, does she find some!

BoylesqueTO’s stud-studded line-up includes the ruggedly handsome James and the Giant Pasty, the fiercely seductive Newfound Lad, the devilishly sexy El Toro, and the endearingly crass Wrong Note Rusty -- all of whom are guaranteed to knock your briefs off!

General admission: $15 advance, $20 at the door
VIP: $25 advance, $30 at the door

Doors at 7:00PM, show at 8:00PM

"Beautiful art and powerful commentary on the nature of sex, masculinity, and gender."
- Canadian Theatre Review

Founded in 2008, BoylesqueTO is proud to be Canada’s premiere all-male burlesque troupe. This talented group of dancers, actors, and performance artists have been busting their buns to put male nudity back on the legitimate stage where it belongs. A BoylesqueTO show is guaranteed to leave you hot under the collar, howling with laughter, and screaming for more!

Since their inception, the boys have really taken off (pun intended)! They’ve mounted dozens of sold out shows, performed at countless festivals, events, and parties around the world and have been featured widely on television and in print. They sold out their run of Oh Manada! at the 2015 Edmonton Fringe festival to rave reviews and followed that up with a critically acclaimed run at the 2016 Orlando Fringe. In 2017 they toured their sequel show Mo’ Manada! to Orlando and Edmonton and received more stellar reviews. In 2018 they won the coveted award for "Most Comedic" for their performance at the Tournament of Tease at the Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas; toured Oh Manada to Montreal, Sherbrooke, Toronto, Kingston, Ottawa, and Quebec City; and debuted their new show A Briefs History of Time in Toronto and at the Edmonton Fringe.

They have also appeared at the Life Ball, The Feminist Porn Awards, The New York and Vienna Boylesque Festivals, the Vancouver, Stockholm, Montreal, Paris, Boston, and Chicago Burlesque Festivals, and Toronto and Ottawa Pride. In 2014 they starred in Logo's TV documentary I'm A Stripper: Boylesque and they scandalized the nation on national television two years before that on Canada's Got Talent. They've been covered in print and online at outlets such as the Toronto Star, Xtra, Details Magazine, Now Magazine, Metro, and many more. And they just can't wait to take it off for you!
