We have gone up in the world, and now we’ve got a lovely website! This blog is up for now, but check out bombsawaycabaret.com for the latest on what our bombshells and bombardiers are doing these days.
Barbie Angell is a fabulous poet, and well known in Asheville for her wit and wordsmithing. She was sweet enough to don a short skirt and fancy tights, get on stage, and read some of her bitter, sweet, and sexy verses for all eight shows of High Skirts: Illicitly Yours – and then she was nice enough to write a whole post about it!

“High Skirts: Illicitly Yours”
“High Skirts: Illicitly Yours!” is Bombs Away Cabaret’s fourth full-length original production, andcombines a farcical play, an original score and talent acts, promising a little something for everyone. The girls are glamorous, the tease is tantalizing, and the laughs are non-stop in this wild, witty show that again brings satirical humor to the forefront of Asheville’s Burlesque scene. Due to language, drug references, and sexual content, this show is appropriate for adult audiences only. With all profits benefiting Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, spectators can feel great about enjoying a bit of naughty fun!
Here is the direct link to buy tickets for the 7:30 and 11:00 p.m. shows of Get Some Faerie Tail.
Bombs Away Cabaret, Asheville’s foremost cabaret and burlesque collaborative, is excited to announce its next venture: Get Some Faerie Tail, a fairytale-themed revue show also featuring psycho-cabaret band Hellblinki and juggling troupe Forty Fingers and a Missing Tooth. All material featured will be original.
The Mountain Xpress calls Bombs Away Cabaret “bright, feisty and accomplished, without ever taking itself seriously.”
Asheville audiences know Bombs Away Cabaret from its previous full-length productions, which have all attracted sellout crowds – and for good reason.
In the words of The Laurel of Asheville, Bombs Away Cabaret’s shows are “tawdry, bawdy, and leave you saying ‘Oh, lawdy!’”
Bombs Away Cabaret was formed in 2008 and is dedicated to restoring burlesque to its comedic roots while raise funds for charitable causes. In April 2012, the troupe will venture to the Magnetic Field Theatre for its fourth full-length production, High Skirts: Illicitly Yours, a farcical play interwoven with original musical comedy numbers. Proceeds from Get Some Faerie Tail will help the troupe stage High Skirts: Illicitly Yours, whose proceeds will benefit Brother Wolf Animal Rescue.
What do you get when you mix elements of American folk, European cabaret and Punk Rock experimentation? You get the Hellblinki Sextet, a three-piece psycho-cabaret band based in Asheville. As members of Hellblinki, Andrew Benjamin, Valerie Meiss and JonPaul Hess tour and record regularly.
Local favorite Forty Fingers and a Missing Tooth is a juggling troupe known for their unique and engaging take on juggling. Forty Fingers and a Missing Tooth has joined Bombs Away previously as guest performers in Bombs Away’s full-length productions.
This fairytale-themed revue show promises a little something for everyone, with a vaudevillian spin on fairytale archetypes. Due to language and sexual content this show is appropriate for adult audiences only.
