Dreamboys, Wolverhampton Grand Theatre - review

The Dreamboys - it says it all really.


This sexy and cheeky group of men thrilled the crowd at Wolverhampton Grand last night with a sweaty, steamy and fun performance that appealed to the basics instincts of the audience.

The show turns the male gaze on its head in a delicious and daring performance that offered everything you would expect from a show of half-naked men dancing and more.

And former X Factor contestant, singer and reality television personality Jake Quickenden, who many in the crowd showed up for, really turned up the heat with a cheeky smile and dance.

A crowd of mums, daughters, aunts, sisters and the odd man filled up the theatre to enjoy the guilt-free evening with no strings attached without disappointment.

Despite your type, taste, and who you are outside of the theatre, the boys offered raw enjoyment and melted fully-grown women into giddy teenagers.

It was escapism at its best as gawping ladies’ fantasies of half-naked men came to life on stage. Fire fighters? Yes, they were hot. Builders? We do not mind that bottom. Rockers? You can rock my world. And the variety went on from there.

The group of muscular, sweaty and half-naked hunks were more than just sex appeal, of which they had plenty. They sent a wave of bashful laughs and shocked screams through the crowd with their playful performances; especially as they pulled audience members onto the stage.


It would not be a waste of time buying tickets to be closer to the boys. Each person selected to grace the stage had their own hilarious mannerisms - from awkwardly shy, as the dancer dragged their hand down their perfectly toned abdominals, to the confident middle-aged woman who did not hold back as she gleefully joined in.

It was a lot of fun and that made it for the audience.

Dreamboys lived up to the hype, and believe me there was a lot of hype.

I would recommend leaving the husband at home and treating yourself to this show at least once.

It would be the perfect hen do before locking yourself down for the rest of your life.
