Behind the Curtain
Get ready to have your socks knocked off by THE ATOMIC BOMBSHELLS, Seattle's internationally celebrated, polished and perfectly-choreographed, professional burlesque troupe, as they present a show that celebrates the feminine form with good humor and style. This is no send-up; this is the real thing!
Originally hailing from the sultry swamps of New Orleans, THE ATOMIC BOMBSHELLS have taken the international burlesque scene by storm. As original members of the illustrious Shim Sham Revue in the historic French Quarter, these ladies were taught their bumps n' grinds by the original stars of burlesque's Golden Age, and were featured in numerous publications, such as GQ, Bust, Tease magazine, and MTV.com. Now the girls bring a little Southern sizzle to the Pacific Northwest and abroad with their inspired combination of vintage Bourbon St. striptease, show-stopping choreography, and MGM-era glamour.
Since their debut in 2003 at The Showbox in Seattle with Burlesque superstar Dita Von Teese, The Atomic Bombshells have been in high demand, performing to packed audiences in the city's most fabulous venues, headlining a 30-city Camel Speakeasy Tour across the U.S.A., and wowing East Coast audiences with a yearly summer residence in legendary Provincetown, Massachusetts' venerated theater scene. This troupe of Burlesque All-Stars have been featured performers at Tease-O-Rama, the New York Burlesque Festival, and the Miss Exotic World pageant. In Seattle, The Atomic Bombshells were the first troupe to bring burlesque to the historic Triple Door Theater, with numerous sold- out runs there, as well as the city's oldest vaudeville venue, Columbia City Theater. Featured in countless local and international publications, The Atomic Bombshells have been recently showcased on Emmy-Winning PBS program “Full Focus”. Most recently the Bombshells have spread their “gospel of glitter” overseas, performing sold-out events in Amsterdam, Berlin, Portugal, and Shanghai. If you haven't experienced the creme-de-la-creme of American showgirls, come see why The Atomic Bombshells have been called “The New York Yankees of Burlesque!” (KPLU Radio)... Duck and cover... you're about to be blown away!
