Nightfall in New Orleans, redux

Kitten La Rue's tribute to Evangeline the Oyster Girl (photo: Jules Doyle)

The unmistakable sound of cicadas, jazz funeral mourners in various states of undress, ladies in petticoats languidly fanning themselves- it must be summer in the Deep South. The Atomic Bombshells bring back “Nightfall in New Orleans”- an impassioned love letter to their spiritual and literal home (Kitten La Rue and Fanny N. Flames are N.O. natives) – July 2-3 at The Triple Door in Seattle/July 10 in Bellingham. The production is decidedly steamier than the naughty but nice sets we’ve come to know and love from the Bombshells; expect a little more skin and a lot more humidity.

Tributes to New Orleans legends abound. Previously, Miss Indigo Blue reprised Wild Cherry’s sexually charged “Temptation” act, host Jasper McCann got down and dirty “Streetcar” style, and Kitten La Rue channeled Evangeline the Oyster Girl (aka New Orleans starlet Kitty West) emerging from a shell to roll around and play with her…pearl. Though the girls remain tight-lipped, encore performances are likely.
