Freedom Fantasia in pictures. Atomic Bombshells hit the Moore.
The Atomic Bombshells have just announced that they’ll be appearing at the historic Moore Theatre in August. This warrants a little research to see when the last burlesque show hit the hallowed Moore stage. I’m guessing it has been quite a while, but it’s very much Artistic Director Kitten LaRue’s style to have a few surprises- big surprises- up her sleeve.
Built in 1907, the Moore is the oldest remaining operational theatre in Seattle. The Columbia City Theatre, the oldest vaudeville theater in the state of Washington, was built in 1917; the historic Mann building that houses The Triple Door was originally home to the Embassy Theatre, a vaudeville house that opened in 1926. The Moore was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. These days the Moore is a little shabby, but still elegant- and they’re about to join the other two theatres in hosting a little shimmy and shake. Seeing the Bombshells- plus the troupe debut of newest member Inga Ingénue- is going to be one of the best classic burlesque revues this summer. Get tickets HERE.
