DD7 in Thunderballs: A James Bond Boylesque

May 2, 2015
Gorilla Tango Theater, Chicago, IL
[Months ago we received an exciting press release announcing Gorilla Tango’s James Bond show with a twist, and we quickly reached out to our peeps in Chicago to see if anyone could shoot it. Photographer Greg Inda was game, and, Voila! Please enjoy this awesome gallery of photos from the show. Feel free to then embark on a James Bond binge. It’s really quite fun.—Ed.]
[From the press release:]
If you’ve seen one James Bond film, you’ve seen them all. But you’ve never seen Bond quite like this! In this sexy spy striptacular where James Bond is played by a lovely lady, and all the—er—lovely Bond ladies are played by guys, the James Bond formula for success is dissected and deconstructed in the most self aware burlesque/boylesque satire yet.
When MI6 learns that someone has been stockpiling vast quantities of gold, they suspect bouillon dealer Blofeld Goldfinger LeChiffre, head of the Global Leaders for International Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion (GLITRE) of being involved and send James Bond, agent DD7, to investigate. Bond soon uncovers an audacious plan—Operation: Genius Evil Plan to be exact. Can James Bond stop this criminal organization from destroying the world? And can he do it before losing his shirt?
