Arts Insider Pick of the Week: Bourbon Babes of the Bluegrass


Eve Theatre Company will unveil its original production of Bourbon Babes of the Bluegrass at the Bard’s Town Theatre March 5-8, 2015 as part of Women’s History Month. 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.


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.

“This is Eve’s way of encouraging new and overdue appreciation for the roles that women played in this very important industry,” says Lynch. “We hope that Bourbon Babes will change the way people see bourbon, right down to how to sip a Mint Julep.”

As part of the celebration, the evening includes pre-show Bourbon Tastings hosted by some of Louisville’s most noted female Master Tasters, including Marianne Barnes, Master Taster for Brown-Forman, and Carla Carlton, host of the Bourbon Babe blog.

When: March 5-7 @ 7:30 PM and March 8 @ 3PM
Where: Bards Town Theatre, 1801 Bardstown Rd.
