Behind The Curtain
Get ready to be dazzled by THE ATOMIC BOMBSHELLS, Seattle’s
polished and perfectly-choreographed professional burlesque troupe, as
they celebrate 15 years of performance that celebrates and integrates
seamlessly the worlds of burlesque, drag, dance, and theater with good
humor and classic style. This is no send-up; this is the real thing!
The Atomic Bombshells have taken the international burlesque scene by
storm, comprised of more award-winning, title-holding artists than any
existing troupe in the world. Founded by original members of the illustrious
Shim Sham Revue in New Orleans' historic French Quarter, these ladies
were taught their bumps n' grinds by the legends of burlesque’s Golden
Age, and brought that Southern sizzle to the Pacific Northwest, the East
Coast, and beyond 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 constant high demand, performing to packed audiences in the city's most fabulous venues, headlining a 30-city U.S tour, and wowing East Coast audiences with a yearly summer residence in 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 Burlesque Hall Of Fame Weekend. 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 at the city's oldest vaudeville venue, Columbia City Theater, and the historic and prestigious Moore Theater. Featured in countless local and international publications, The Atomic Bombshells have been recently showcased on Emmy-Winning PBS program "Full Focus". The Bombshells have spread their "gospel of glitter" overseas, performing sold-out events in Amsterdam, Berlin, Portugal, and Shanghai, and headlined an Australian tour in January of 2014, with sold
out shows at the Perth Fringe Festival. The troupe is proud to include such titles as the Burlesque Hall Of Fame's "Reigning Queen of Burlesque" 2011(Indigo Blue), "Reigning Queen of Burlesque" 2018 (Inga), Reigning King of Boylesque (Lou Henry Hoover), “Most Comedic” 2014 and voted #1 Burlesque Stars in the World by Burlesque Top 50 (Kitten N’ Lou).
