“The ‘Le Scandal’ performers entertain, entice, and enrage all the while redefining what is sexy...
One wonders why there isn't a year-long waiting list to get a piece of this action.”

—Tristan Taorimino, The Village Voice

“This is New Burlesque, the artistic step-sister of stripping...it has been spreading across North America for the past five years, practiced by troupes from New York City (Le Scandal)....”

The New Yorker, July 23, 2001

“The New Burlesque is a way of ushering the old erotic theater out of the straw and stick house of pornography and into the little brick house of downtown art.”                                                                                                                               —Time magazine, May 20, 2002

“Wilkommen to the Blue Angel Cabaret [Le Scandal]...part Showgirls, part Broadway Danny Rose.”

The New York Times, October 4, 1998

“Le Scandal is the longest-running burlesque show in NYC, with a campy innocence that harks back
to the old days of burlesque...”                                                                                                                                                              —The Street

“Le Scandal is the rock star of burlesque! ...with lines winding outside the door and an excitable crowd.”
