About the event:The Bally Hoo! was conceived of, directed and produced by Nicolle Wood, as one of her very first large scale innovations as Entertainment Director at Untitled Supperclub, in the summer of 2012.
Nicolle’s extensive knowledge of the period had images of live entertainment, dancing and the social culture of the period indelibly set in her mind. Intended to emulate the floorshows of the 1930s and 1940s, The Bally Hoo came to life after extensive and tireless auditions to find the perfect performers, in depth discussions regarding the perfect setting for the show, hours of work alongside band leader and arranger Andy Schumm, and, of course, timing is everything.
Since it’s triumphant run at Untitled, The Bally Hoo! has been performed throughout the Chicagoland area for private and public events alike, and has always been received with wild applause by guests everywhere.
The Bally Hoo! and the Chicago Cultural Center
The Galaxie was thrilled to be invited to perform The Bally Hoo! at the Chicago Cultural Center in April 2014, as a part of the acclaimed Mecca Flat Blues Exhibition. Hundreds of guests joined in the celebration, honoring the era and the artistry.
Some inspiration for the original production:
What we provide: The Bally Hoo! in its entirety is a 90 minute long floor show with performances by The Galaxie Girls, a dashing host, engaging male and female vocalists, variete performances that include Burlesque and Fan Dancers, and one smokin’ hot band- The Fat Babies.
In addition to these visual and auditory treats, guests are invited to sit for dinner or cocktails, get up and dance, and generally enjoy the experience of an evening of classic entertainment.
