It’s a burlesque bonanza!

Last year The Atomic Bombshells presented an ambitious all new production, Lost In Space- definitely the most over the top show up to that point in Bombshell history in terms of scope, cast size, fantastical costumes, and sets. Never ones to sit back and rest on their adorable laurels, the Bombshells have dreamed even bigger for the upcoming three night encore run of Lost In Space (October 6-8 at The Triple Door). There will be just a few little additions and surprises, says performer and Artistic Director Kitten LaRue:

First of all, the show will be Co-hosted by Captain Jasper McCann with “First Mate” Lieutenant Lou Henry Hoover (they make an adorable and hilarious pair), and Lou will also be dancing in the show as our first EVER Atomic BOYshell! Also, this year the “Meteor Shower” chorus is a super sexy all-male group of Meteor Men, featuring some of the best dancers in the modern dance world: Gerard Delacroix, Sean Tomerlin, Markeith Wiley, Eric Pitsenberger, and Paris and Trojan Original. Last but not least, we have the Lost In Space debut of our new Bombshell Inga Ingénue, so everyone will just have to come to the show and be surprised by which act she does! The show also features special guests Ben DeLaCreme (who’s expanded his “Bug Girl” act to something AMAZING!), Waxie Moon, and The Aerialistas.

Incidentally, Kitten LaRue spent a large part of her summer in her beloved city of New Orleans, where she performed with Bella Blue and the New Orleans School of Burlesque. Kitten and Lou Henry Hoover created and taught a workshop called “Burlesque Goes POP!” incorporating burlesque basics with pop choreography. They also performed together at several of the annual Southern Decadence events (aka the festival lovingly referred to as “the gay Mardi Gras”). While in New Orleans, the burlesque and dance duo also created and starred in “Drag Me With a Spoon!” at One Eyed Jack’s (formerly Louis Prima’s club).

But for the moment, you can find Kitten back home in Seattle with her first love, The Atomic Bombshells. Get tickets and info on Lost In Space HERE (with a special “preview” price on Thursday evening, and on Friday, French Royal cocktails from 6:30 on to benefit BurlyCon).

Also opening this weekend- making it possible for Seattle to catch not one but TWO pillars of Seattle burlesque and dance in action- Heavenly Spies Betty Burlesque kicks off a two month run this Friday at Can Can. The “death-defying high kicks and gravity-defying hair” of these unstoppable ladies are back with another show sure to sell out week after week like previous productions Mata Hari and XOXOX! (I say “unstoppable” because if you haven’t seen a Spies show yet, it really is one intensely athletic dance routine after another).

In communicating with me via her mysterious pink rotary phone, Agent Rhinestone confessed that she actually taught the evening length show’s choreography to her fellow Spies while about to give birth to her beautiful baby boy. “Shimmies are not the same when you’re a week overdue,” she told me.

Though Agent Rhinestone will be minding her girls from the sidelines for now, the line up for Betty will be:

Coco Capone
Kimberly Galore
Caela Bailey
Violet Hour
With newest addition, BeBe Danger and a different guest artist every week (such as Benihana of the Castaways and The Luminous Pariah).
