Kitten N’ Lou: OVEREXPOSED!
April 17 doors at 9pm
One Eyed Jacks, 615 Toulouse Street, New Orleans
Fresh off the heels of sold out shows and rave reviews at Fringe World in Australia, two off-Broadway runs in NYC, plus a National tour, Kitten N’ Lou bring their hit tale of love, loneliness, and sequins to New Orleans!
What happens when a bodacious burlesque star and a diminutive drag king fall in love? Showbiz magic! Kitten N’ Lou, the world’s show-BUSIEST couple are an award winning 'fluorescent Fred and Ginger' who will dance, lip sync and strip their way through an evening of hilarious and heartbreaking high-camp hijinks.
Or at least that’s the plan...
Like in every marriage, Kitten N’ Lou’s best laid plans are subject to the twists and turns of life. As the couple navigates the reality of performing an evening length spectacular with only two performers, they find themselves facing the reality of what it means to be “just us” - an unconventional couple finding their way in the convention of marriage. This melange of cabaret acts employs glitter and glitz not only to entertain, but to reveal... How do two individuals deal with the borderline-existential-crisis-crash of postwedding married life? Who will pack the glitter? Where does the showbiz end and real life begin? Does it matter? Who are Kitten and Lou without “Kitten N’ Lou?”
Voted the #1 Burlesque Performers in the World on 21st Century Burlesque's Top Fifty AND awarded the coveted title of 'Most Comedic' of The Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas (2014), Kitten N’ Lou are known for combining the glamorous and the absurd for surprising and delightfully titilating results. Join Kitten N’ Lou as they ask the hard questions, cut a rug, and wear their hearts on their sleeves.
