Bourbon Babes of the Bluegrass at the Frazier Museum
Eve Theatre Company will perform its original production of Bourbon Babes of the Bluegrass at the Frazier History Museum March 23, 29, 30 and 31, 2016 as part of the Frazier’s current Spirits of the Bluegrass: Prohibition and Kentucky exhibit. This one hour special “Eve-vent” pays tribute to the many women who, over the centuries, have contributed significantly to Kentucky’s signature bourbon industry.
The play, a fun and fast-paced homage to the Kentucky women who helped breathe life into the booming bourbon industry, premiered in Louisville last March as part of Women’s History Month and was performed at the Bourbon Women Taste Affair last June at the Governor’s Mansion and at the Kentucky Bourbon Marketplace, Bardstown, as part of the Kentucky Bourbon Festival in September.
Written by Eve Theare Company member Susan McNeese Lynch, Bourbon Babes tells the personal stories of seven women who have contributed in such ways as being the first to write down a recipe for sour mash, creating a bottle and red wax seal that is now known the world over, and building a bootlegging business that was second to none.
Interspersed among the stories of these fascinating women are a series of “Mixers” that add extra history, humor, trivia, cocktail recipes, music, and a little mayhem to the proceedings.
