Ultimate Grand Supreme! A royal Northwest tour kicks off in Seattle.

This weekend!

This weekend!

The clouds have lifted, the sun is shining, and there’s burlesque royalty sashaying through the springtime hamlets of Seattle and Olympia. Portland’s Russell Bruner (Reigning King of Burlesque 2012) and Chicago’s Michelle L’amour (Miss Exotic World 2005) will appear at West Hall on Thursday, May 9 and then continue the royal procession on over to Olympia’s historic Capitol Theater on Friday, May 10.

Seattle’s Ultimate Grand Supreme will feature Kitten LaRue (Producer and Head Bombshell of burlesque supertroupe The Atomic Bombshells), Lou Henry Hoover, hostess extraordinaire BenDeLaCreme, plus more surprises. Inga Ingénue (Miss Viva Las Vegas 2011) will perform the act that served as her step down number from her coveted Vegas title.

Kitten recently explained how she came to know Russell and Michelle: “I originally met Russell because he auditioned for Freedom Fantasia the first year we were casting the show! We of course LOVED him, but he had a schedule conflict with the show dates. As for Michelle, she and I first met when we were both asked to perform at the Legends Ball at Burlesque Hall of Fame in 2008. I did my “Feline Fantasia” act (a tribute to Lily Christine) and I was absolutely blown away by her Sally Rand tribute fan dance….one of the most gorgeous acts in burlesque. I’m excited that Michelle will be bringing two acts that Seattle has never seen before!”

Michelle L’amour is a modern day trailblazer- she’s been performing since 2002 and has captivated audiences on five continents with her singularly glamorous style, not to mention her fabulous appearances on multiple television shows (most recently, “In the Bedroom” on the Oprah Winfrey Network). Classic pin-up photographer and Bettie Page protégée Bunny Yeager featured Michelle in her recent book- a top honor for any burlesque performer. Rising burlesque starlets from miles around are instructed in technique for all skill levels at Michelle’s popular Studio L’amour in Chicago… the city which is home to the flagship chapter of Naked Girls Reading….which as it happens, was founded by Michelle and Franky Vivid. Ms. L’amour is quite an in-demand showgirl, so catch her here in the Northwest while you can.
