Japan postcard

The LA Knockers performed in Japan for 3 years in a row (1980, 1981, 1982), at the Latin Quarter club in Tokyo, and became very popular.  Here are 2 postcards we found, thanks to DeeDee, about their last engagement in October 1982.

Jennifer remembers: “We were booked in Japan for six weeks over a three year period. What a treat. We had a magnificent stage at the Latin Quarter in Akasaka, fabulous lighting and great audiences. The Japanese men were crazy about us, big goofey girls, and they understood our comedy. We stayed in darling tiny rooms at the Akasaka Hotel and were showered with huge bouquets of exotic flowers.  Those photos from the postcards hung on the wall of the Latin Quarter advertising our show. It was trippy!  It was a sensational booking!  We fell in love with the country and the people.” read more under comments…

Some of the regular dancers were not able to travel.  DeeDee wrote to us about her very good reason to stay home: she had been cast as Sally Bowles in CABARET!  Jennifer was very understanding and sent her these postcards, that she framed.  Read her amusing story under comments.
