The Flaming Dames Return in ‘Vegas Baby’
New Burlesque Revue Brings Taste of Sin-City to Uptown
Chicago, IL – On April 4 2008, The Flaming Dames are back and raising the stakes once more with their latest revue, The Flaming Dames in Vegas Baby. This time around the ladies are paying homage to everything glitzy, glamorous, and sexy about that city of ‘sin’, Las Vegas, Nevada. Returning once again to Uptown’s The Spot, the ‘dames’ are ready to entice with brand new ‘strip’-tastic dances and two hot new hosts. High rollers, lounge lizards, and rat packers alike will be welcomed by seasoned stage veteran and Las Vegas alum, Mr. Jack Spade who will be sharing the stage and Master of Ceremony duties with the greatest entertainer of all time, “Mr Vegas” himself, Tony Clifton. From the classic Vegas showgirl styles to the latest hip-gyrating moves, The Flaming Dames in Vegas Baby could raise Elvis from the dead and shoot him through the Stratosphere.
The Flaming Dames are Chicago’s premiere “concept burlesque” troupe, producing innovative, pop culture infused revues for the past 5 years. Their original revue, SIN-troducing The Flaming Dames, was turning audience members away and since opening up The Spot in 2006 several more concept shows have come along including The Flaming Dames in Talk Dirty To Me, The Flaming Dames in Bump and Grindhouse, and The Flaming Dames in Naughty & Nice with similar results. . Audiences will hit the jackpot with the latest Dames installment which offers a sleek new style that glitters like a bedazzled white suit without losing the edge that The Flaming Dames have become known for.
“The show, the dances, and the ‘Dames’ really reflect the glamour of Vegas,” explains Creative and Managing Director, Leslie Kerrigan. “But our hats are still tipped to the big, snazzy, old school Las Vegas productions.” “We’re glitzier and bawdier than ever—the essence of Vegas right here in Chicago!” adds Assistant Creative Director Meagan Piccochi.
Prepare to be teased & titillated like never before. It’s never a gamble with The Flaming Dames and ‘Vegas Baby’ will be no exception…you can put your money on it. But remember, what happens in Vegas, stays in ‘Vegas, Baby!’
The Flaming Dames in Vegas Baby runs Fridays at 10:30, April 4th through June 6th at The Spot, 4437 N. Broadway in Chicago. Advance tickets are $15 and can be purchased at www.nmtchicago.org or reserved by calling 312-458-9083. Limited tickets are available at the door.
