I'm realizing now - at this very moment - the night before we open "Vaudezilla!" - our weekly burlesque show at Stage 773, that I basically took the last two years off from focusing on show production, to instead focus on building our studio classes and off-site corporate burly-Q work, both of which are absolutely flourishing.

Now we are returning to larger scale show production...! I actually had to stop what I was doing this afternoon to think about that. We have returned to the very thing that originally put us on the map.

If all goes as planned, I believe we'll officially be on the next rung of creating sustainable, high-paying performance work for our performers. It feels really good to see all the hard work pay off. I feel confident, grateful, and absolutely tickled at the prospect of redefining local burlesque.

Thank you to everyone who has supported our journey by being in/at our shows, taking our classes, or being "that person" who put up roadblocks & detours, reminding us of where we needed to improve. We couldn't have created any of this without the friction between what we wanted and the contrasting and/or contradictory expectations of others! :)

Hope to see you at tomorrow night's debut show of "Vaudezilla!"
