(Guest post by Naïké R.)

Tuesday, Sept 3rd was the opening night of the Wiggle Room, a unique, vintage-inspired cocktail cabaret. The only one of its kind in Montreal, this venue brings patrons back to simpler, classier times.


The space formerly known as the Jupiter Room has been entirely restored into a gem of yesteryear. Everything from the stage, banquettes, bar, and elaborately-mustached barman oozes that upscale vintage feel. The entertainment is set to include variety nights (in true vaudevillian style), comedy acts, improv, burlesque, and live musical performances. On Thursdays through Saturdays there will also be post-show dancing nights curated by a DJ until the late hours of the night.

Owner Jeremy Hechtman describes the Wiggle Room as an effort to bring back that intimate cabaret feel to Montreal. That is exactly the kind of magic patrons felt on opening night, which doubled as an audition for Wiggle Room shows. The audience chose their two favorite acts, and those elected will return next week. The night provided a selection of acts that would leave anyone with that feel-good mood so quintessential to entertainment in the first half of the twentieth century, before the great depression hit.

Hechtman's experience as the former Artistic Director of Mainline Theatre, and former Producer of the Montreal Fringe Festival makes him the right man for the job. The two other creative minds behind Wiggle Room, Patrick Charron and Holly Gauthier-Frankel, are staples of the Montreal theatre scene. Charron is a local producer, performer, and the former English Communications and Programming Director at Montreal's historic Rialto Theatre. Miss Gauthier-Frankel a.k.a Miss Sugarpuss has 25 years of experience in show business as an actor, singer, dancer and teacher. She's also Canada's foremost burlesque star.

By the way, fans of burlesque should note that Miss Sugarpuss will be emceeing all Saturday burlesque shows. She's been quoted promising the Wiggle Room would become the best burlesque place in Canada. Don't miss this Saturday's burlesque review featuring Roxi D'Lite!

This did not work for me. I was excited to try it, coensdnriig I have 3 pairs of ballet flats that I have not been able to wear because the backs of them dig into my skin and cause me to have awful blisters. I put them on with a pair of socks, like instructed, and had the blow dryer on the back of them for about 5 minutes straight. I tried stretching them every way possible to get the backs to loosen up, but nothing. They are still the same killer flats as before. :(
