They’re Back: The Atomic Bombshells Nov. 13-16

I rarely do previews, but since this burlesque group will be here for such a short time, and because it already has a loyal following in Seattle, it seemed appropriate to let you know they will celebrate their tenth anniversary performing here with a four night stint at the Triple Door. The production is billed as a sci-fi spectacular called “Lost in Space.”

Their producer-performer Kitten LaRue describes the show as a retro sci-fi excursion with ’50s music. One feature will be Honey D. Luxe’s tribute to Barbarella in which she manages to wear, then take off every costume Jane Fonda wore in the movie. There’s also a number in which the rings of Saturn play a significant role.

The show integrates burlesque with dance, drag, and theatre, and, of course, it’s camp of the highest order. Filled with glitz as well as glamour, I expect it will brighten things up now that the dark days of autumn are upon us.

Nov. 13-16, The Triple Door, 216 Union Street, Seattle, (206 838-4333 or or
