The truth, the whole truth, so help me, Sweet Louise!
“What I can tell you of Sweet Louise is this: She was born on the top of a steamer trunk one hot and vaporous night just outside of Paducah, Kentucky. Maybe that’s why she likes to travel so much. It should be noted that her mama’s mama Elinore Du Prix closed the last act of the Chicago vaudeville circuit in 1939. So she just about got herself born into showgirl royalty. Let it not be said though that Sweet Louise has ridden the reputation of her grand mama’s fringe. She has achieved distinction on her own with performances celebrated from here to there and there to here – including New York, New Orleans and even as far as Bristol, UK and now she finds herself in Kansas City, the bosom of America. With hips that wont quit and legs that go on just about forever it’s no wonder audiences love her and her bum ex husband Ronnie won’t quit chasing her – so if you see him hanging around the stage door, you just tell him to Shoo! And for goodness sake don’t give him any money. And by the way, if you were thinking of warming your way into Sweet Louise’s heart, she has a strong preference for sunflowers and foreign accents. Oh, and her favorite color is shiny.” Respectfully submitted by Miss. Sweet Louise’s personal biographer, Harlow Zug.
