The Other Boston Marathon

Dear Constant Reader,

Last year there was this movie called “Burlesque”. We all knew it was going to have nothing to do with the kind of burlesque that we did and Scratch decided a little public education was necessary.

The weekend before the movie was released, he organized a burlesque marathon. 8 hours of burlesque, all night long. Performers from all over New England. Home-made bagels for the survivors. Crazy, no?

And it actually happened, despite chaos and disasters major and minor. There was a wonderful camaraderie backstage as we helped one another change costume, lug props, solve last minute problems. And the guys in the tech booth were big heroes. Come dawn that theatre was simply covered in glitter… and coffee cups. You can read all about it here.

And for some reason people wanted to do it again. And somehow Scratch agreed to do it again.

Please join us for the Second (Annual?) Burlesque Marathon starting this Saturday at 11:59 and running until 8am on Sunday!
