Local Shows - Les Coquettes: First Bite

This would be my first time seeing Les Coquettes perform one of their shows. I've seen bits of the troop out and about; the wonderful Billie Black and I have worked a gig together, Dew Lily should never leave the house with pants on, and Le Barback is probably the best panty bandit/stage man a girl could ever ask for.

This was an amazing show.

Let's Just start off with an 'Oh. My. God.' for the entire cast and crew. This was seriously one of the top burlesque shows I have ever been to.

There was amazing use-of-space, and the seating was laid out perfectly. The photo on the left doesn't quite capture the red atmospheric lighting tht was used in the arches, but it was there. It does show the size of the crowd. The show-lighting was more than the standard 'up, and down' of typical lighting, and each and every one of the troop members is talented beyond belief.

I loved it.

From a producer's point of view, it must have taken a HELL of a lot of work to put together. I'm envious of the 'marketing team' and the crew, having been in those roles all by my lonesome…all at the same time. From a performer's point of view, it took a HELL of a lot of rehearsal time.

The markings of a good show.

I'm going to be gettin' tickets for their Christmas show, and should ya'll.

  1. Hey Red,

    Thanks for the love! Our "production and marketing machine" is the result of some of our own elbow grease and the incredible talents of friends that co-founder Lilli Bubalotovitch and I made along our path from theatre school (where we met) and real life. We're lucky to have such amazing friends.

    Thanks for spreading the good word, and we'll see you on December 12th!

  2. Red,

    It was great meeting you there at the show. I look forward to seeing some of your work as well.

    After that last show, I'm DEFINITELY a convert. See you on the 12th.
