  • Tempest Storm: Dixie Evans was 'one of a kind' in the world of burlesque

    Tempest Storm says it was rare for Dixie Evans and her to appear in a theater at the same time. It happened once, exactly. “We were in the same show once at the Star Theater (in Portland, Ore.) a very long time ago. It was in the ’50s. But we never did appear on the same bill. I’d come in one week, and she’d come the next, or vice versa,” Storm said during a phone conversation Sunday night. “They knew we were going to sell out the room individually.
