Expo 2104: The Newcomers’ Showcase

Dear Constant Reader,

The Expo concludes with The Original Newcomers’ Showcase, an opportunity for newer performers to strut their stuff in front of a friendly audience. For the past several years, I’ve been hosting it, which is both delightful and nerve-wracking, since it’s usually the only time all year that I host a show. I don’t get to see all of the acts or see them from the best vantage point because I’m in the wings and often checking in with the next performer.

A few of my favorites that I did see this year:

  • Jovie DeVoe was buoyant and bubbly with a classic balloon pop
  • Holly Deck blew my mind with a fan dance in tribute to Gary Busey. Yes, really.
  • Ginny Nightshade is a perpetual favorite of mine and great to work with. Her “Wolf in Peep’s Clothing” act was super-hot.
  • Trixie Santiago was the brave soul who made her striptease debut at the “Boston Loves Dixie” show. She wowed me with her new act, which suits her perfectly.
  • Stella Chuu was just stunning with her “Tron” number.
  • I’m so proud of the moment when the Burlesque Your Way students make their stage debuts. This year they only had 5 weeks instead of the usual 6 to create their acts and they worked so hard!

    Serena Soirée, Voluptuous Vanessa Vixen, and Penelope Strut were just fabulous and I hope to see more from them and soon!

    And then other than strike, that was the end of another Expo. See you in 2015! It’ll be my birthday!
