J'Adore! returns to The Triple Door

The Atomic Bombshells celebrate the third year of Valentine’s spectacular J’Adore! at the Triple Door February 12-13. In what is arguably their best production, The Bombshells ruminate on the many forms of love in roughly a dozen imaginative numbers. The bizarre signature act features a couple of cherubs in their skivvies poking at Honey D. Luxe (aka fashion designer J.Von Stratton) who is barely visible in a monstrous balloon ensemble which converts to an amazing sweetheart of a dress.

Incidentally, Honey- who performs as Lucky Penny outside the Bombshells- is in Finland this week guesting in the Helsinki Burlesque Festival. In addition to the prerequisite workshops and a special viewing of award-winning film Tournée, the roll call of festival performers and speakers is impressive in itself:

– Princess Farhana of Hollywood ( US)
– Kitten on The Keys (US)
– Mimi Le Meaux (US)
– Alotta Boutte (US)
– Trixie Little and The Evil Hate Monkey (US)
– Miss Astrid (US)
– Lucky Penny (US)
– Cherry Typhoon (JPN)
– Velma Voluptuous (SE)
– Virginia Valentine (SE)
– AlexiXXX Carpentieri (SE)
– Hell Monty (FIN)
– The Itty-Bitty Tease Cabaret (FIN)
– Loulou D’vil (FIN)
– Welma Jackpot (FIN)
– The Silk Sisters (FIN)
– Kiki Hawaiji (FIN)
– Bettie Blackheart (FIN)

How is it the US can be the burlesque capital of the world and we still can’t get a domestic release of Tournée? I’m crippled by jealousy. However, we do have J’Adore!, which might be the hottest ticket for a Valentine’s date in existence. Feast your eyes on these photos from previous years…
