So Glamourous

Dear Constant Reader,

As I may have mentioned, the life of a burlesque diva is not all champagne and rhinestones. Sometimes it’s downright dirty, and not in a fun way.

The Boston Babydolls are preparing for our annual halloween show The Wrathskellar (do you have your tickets yet?). This year, instead of asking you to believe that a nice theatre is a disreputable tavern, we’re building an entire custom performance space. How cool is that?

The space is a gutted storefront, basically a construction site. Lots of exposed studs and bricks, broken drywall, bare lightbulbs. It’s perfect for creating our dark, distressed cabaret. However, did I mention it’s a construction site with all the associate paraphernalia that entails?

And that’s why I spent my Saturday piling up a mountain of shredded fiberglas insulation for disposal. And then sweeping dirt, and sweeping sawdust, and sweeping bent nails. At least I have stylish purple work gloves.
