Mia Matthews Stars in Musical Bombshell

As far as I'm concerned if this Bombshell ever detonates again, I'd love to be in the wake of that explosion! – Show review by Timothy Stratton

Quite a beauty herself, Miss Matthews has paid homage to a wide variety of iconic screen goddesses from Mae West to Madonna. Further details for The Bombshell Show can be found on the website.

Theatrical Highlights:
Highlights of the evening included an eerily accurate rendition of Mae West's "Come Up And See Me Sometime", an understated and haunting version of the usually zany Betty Hutton's "I Wish I Didn't Love Him So", and a hilarious send-up of the always serious Marlene Dietrich's "Falling In Love Again". Included were several sultry, sassy and sexy numbers that were originated by legends Rita Hayworth, Lena Horne and even a celluloid Bombshell or two like Jessica Rabbit and Betty Boop rounding out this very enjoyable night.

Mia was joined several times on stage by her friends and "back up boys" Jamison Stern and Kevin B. McGlynn but the night truly belonged to Miss Matthews.
