Becky Bottoms

Director

Becky Bottoms - LAVA Cabaret Producer / Director / Choreographer

Becky Bottoms is the slinky spitfire producing our Friday and Saturday night cabaret shows and directing our LAVA house cast. She is a founding member of [ATOMIC TRASH!] a neo-burlesque duo that has been a creative force in Portland, Maine's underground burlesque scene since 2008. She began dancing in her youth, training in ballet, tap and jazz dance. She continued to dance and seek opportunities to perform all over New England, eventually falling in love with the freedom and unlimited creativity in burlesque. "I can be as sexy and strong as a comic book heroine or as ridiculous and silly as Grouch Marx, and it makes sense in a burlesque show." She loves to fire up the audience with quirky, energetic performances full of witty sass and innovative costumes. Most recently, Becky was directing the [Avant-Garters] burlesque/cabaret group at [Studio 55] in Portland

Simone De Boudoir


Simone de Boudoir loves his sequins and stilettos, but behind closed doors this thespian is no lady. He is trained in theatre and ballet with experiences in modern, aerial and contemporary dance and fancies himself as a director, performer and playwright. His burlesque career began at Studio 55 (RIP) but his flair for the dramatic is not limited to the bright lights--the whole world is his stage. Opinionated and loud, Simone sees no curtain dividing public and private; should you see him on the street? Welcome to his boudoir...
