At the historic Folly Theater in Kansas City, MO for the Kansas City Burlesque Festival 2014.
In the 1900's, The Folly Theater became the premier showplace for performing arts in the midwest. Marx Bros., Humphrey Bogart, Tempest Storm and Shirley Booth among others graced this legendary stage.
Tempest Storm returned to The Folly for the Kansas City Burlesque Festival and watched as the magic once again unfolded on this historical stage. It was a true honor to have her in the audience as Puss-N-Boot's revealed IceQueen.
A tribute to Puss-N-Boots most favorite film, Goldfinger, and iconic character that led her to her namesake.
The one and only Pussy Galore!
"In the novel, Pussy Galore is the only woman in the United States known to be running an organised crime gang. Initially trapeze artists, her group of performing catwomen, "Pussy Galore and her Abrocats", is unsuccessful, and so the women train as cat burglars instead.
Her group evolves into an all-lesbian organisation, based in Harlem, known as the Cement Mixers. In the novel, she has black hair, pale skin, and (according to Bond) the only violet eyes that Bond has ever seen. She is in her thirties, her voice low and attractive. Pussy tells Bond that she became a lesbian after she was sexually abused by her uncle at the age of 12."-Wikipedia
Like honey and a bee, tequila and a lime, burlesque bonds with balloons. No signature set would be complete without the age old balloon pop.
Sally Rand performed the first balloon dance. She made history while dancing with a five foot see through bubble, a balloon size that didn't exist before her time! She is credited with funding for the research to develop the balloon. Sexy and smart!
Balloons are always a high energy, fun form of burlesque performance. It brings the audience back to child hood birthday parties or indulges them in their own latex fantasies.
This act is sure to entertain the crowd! Minus that one person who HATES balloons, ha! There's always one...like a clown.

All occupations have their hazards, at least this one subscribes you drugs, shots and gloves!
Inspired by her very own mother, who was a nurse on call for countless and thankless years. A STRIP-UTE!
