Kelly Brook to strip off for Crazy Horse cabaret
Tuesday 16 October 2012
Model Kelly Brook is to strip on stage after joining the cast of saucy nude revue show Crazy Horse.
The actress and glamour model will join the production for a one-week stint as a guest performer early next month.
Dancers from the famed Paris Crazy Horse cabaret have been performing in London since last month with a residency for a show called Forever Crazy.
Now Brook will join the show - being staged in a temporary venue on the South Bank - from 1 November, after being trained by former Crazy Horse performer Iota Theoreme, who is the show manager.
The 32-year-old will perform a segment called "Lecon d'Erotisme", a key part of the show, and will also appear as a character called Miss Bisou throughout the show.
She lined up with her co-stars from the show today but Brook and the dancers remained far more modestly dressed than they will be on stage as they posed for photos.
Others who have taken guest roles with the Crazy Horse girls over the years include Dita Von Teese and Pamela Anderson.
Brook said she was "ecstatic" to be making an appearance.
"After seeing the show in Paris a few years ago, I have dreamed of becoming a Crazy Horse dancer. The costumes, lighting and choreography make it the best cabaret in the world," she said.
It will not be the first time she has undressed on stage. She took a role as a lap dancer in the play Eye Contact in 2000 performing at London's Riverside Theatre in just a thong and heels.
And she also disrobed in a production of Calendar Girls.
She will appear in Forever Crazy until 8 November.
Promoter Harvey Goldsmith, who brought the show to London, said he was thrilled she was appearing, adding: "It seems like a very obvious fit and I know Kelly will be an incredible addition to the show.""
